    All students are welcome!  The Media Center opens at 8:15 and closes at 4:00.  Students must have a pass from a teacher.

  • Parent Volunteers

  • Book Checkout

    Students may check out up to three books for a two week period.  They may renew books for an additional two weeks.  They may also place books on hold.  Language Arts teachers bring their students for book checkout every two weeks. Students should return their books on time so that other students may check them out.  Students with overdue books must return them first before checking out any new books.

    Replacement costs for lost or damaged books: $10 for paperbacks, $5 for magazines and $20 for hardbacks.  Fines will follow students who transfer to another Gwinnett County school.

  • Technology

    Students will receive a Chromebook to use at school and at home.

    Students, whether working independently or under the supervision of a teacher, are expected to follow the Responsible Use Policy when using school devices. Teachers may reserve the Media Center Collaboration Stations for classroom use using the lab scheduler. 

    Teachers may reserve iPads, the Active Floor, ZSpace, and VR sets for classroom use.

  • Gwinnett County Online Research Library
