Each class has a scheduled weekly media time. To encourage positive reading habits and to refine information skills, students are encouraged to visit the Media Center often. There are several times each day students can return and check out books. Kindergartners, first and second graders may check out one book at a time. Third, fourth and fifth graders may check out two resources to read for pleasure as well as additional resources they may need to support classroom assignments. There are dictionaries, encyclopedias and almanacs for students to check out and six Internet ready computers for students to access while in the Media Center.
Books may be checked out for ten days, but students are encouraged to return them as soon as they have read them. After ten days, books are "overdue" and no other resources may be checked out until overdue items are returned. Resources such as magazines and pamphlets may be checked out for one night.
Students are encouraged to be responsible for prompt return of their library books as well as care of library resources. If yor child misplaces a book, please send a note saying you are aware it is missing. Your child can continue to check out books and a bill will be sent only as a last resort. If a book is lost, or damaged beyond repair, it must be paid for so that a replacement copy can be purchased.
Any parent may request a library card to check out resources from Mangum's Library Media Center. Contact our Media Specialist to provide you with the necessary information.
