Message from the Media Center

Happy New Year and I hope that everyone enjoyed their break!!  

Please check out our new updates to our Media Center page.  Howell Public Schools is under a joint venture with the Howell Library, please click on the link to check it out!

Students must have their student id to check out, renew library books, and to check out chromebook.  Students do not need their id to return a library book. We have a drop box outside the Media Center doors for return or they can bring them into the Media Center to return in the book return.    Please remind your student to check their emails daily.

Chromebooks-students are allowed to use a loaner chromebook.  They will have to check it out in the Media Center at the beginning of each hour and return it at the end of each hour.  Parents/Students if you have questions about your chromebook please see Mrs. Colburn or a Library Service Coordinator to help you.

Chromebooks Hints:  Please don’t let your chromebook get below 30%.  We have been noticing for charging it is easier to charge them before the battery is drained.  If they battery does happen to be at 1% make sure that the chromebook is opened, plugged in, and the light is on and continue to try and wake it up.  There is a safety mode to protect the battery. Please stop by if anyone needs help.

Brown Bag Book Club: Next meeting will be Thursday, January 17 during their lunch.  We are currently Reading Because of Winn Dixie.  

Our Media Center web page is a good place to see what is going on in the Media Center.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. Wishing everyone a wonderful 2018-19 school year!

Library Overdue Policy

Students will receive weekly emails from the Media Center for overdue books and fines.  We will print the fines once a quarter (October 19, January 11, March 15, and May 13). After the notices are printed they will be placed in the Hawk Hour Teacher’s mailbox.  Students will have until the end of the quarter to return/renew their book or pay their fine. If the fine is not paid by the end of the quarter the student will eat lunch in the Media Center and their fine will be waived.
