Information and Policies
Monday - Thursday 6:45 am - 3:00 pm
Fridays 6:45 am - 2:30pm
Passes to the Library:
Students need a pass from their teacher in order to visit the library during class. No more than 3 or 4 students from any one class may come at a time. Students will need to sign in on the computer at the front of the library and may ask to use a laptop if there is a class using the desktop computers.
Food and drinks:
No food or drink is allowed in the Mill Creek Library, except water.
Students may spend all or part of their lunch hour in the library; however, it is a designated academic area. Up to four students may study in groups if they are quiet. Library computers should be used for instructional purposes only. Library staff supervising during lunch may ask students to leave if they are being disruptive. Students do NOT need a pass if they are coming during their lunch period. When we put up the "Full" sign, no more students will be allowed into the library during that lunch period.
Students may check out up to 3 books and keep them for 3 weeks. Books can be renewed if not on hold for another student.
Late fees are five cents a day, with a maximum of $3.00 per book. If you have a fee of $2.00 or over, you will not be allowed to check out another book until the fee is paid.
Payment for lost books can be paid in the library in cash or through MyPaymentsPlus (under "Miscellaneous Fees"). Cost for hardback books is $20, while paperback books are $10.
Printing in black and white is FREE for school assignments (10 cents for personal use). Please note: the library printers DO NOT PRINT DOUBLE-SIDED. If you have over 10 pages, please see a media staff member before printing. Printing in color is 25 cents per page.
A copier is also available for school use. Please ask a library staff member if you need a copy of something.
