    McMurray Library

     Thank You, PIE, for Your Generous Support of Our School Libraries

     

    One powerful trait that steers us toward life-long learning is curiosity, and a resource-rich library plays a central role in cultivating this trait. The number of distinctive science-related books currently being published for young adults is impressive. Middle school students gravitate toward these informative and inspiring books, and many students who prefer nonfiction are especially drawn toward them. Every day, McMurray students deepen on discover an interest while exploring the books on our shelves. We are grateful for PIE's ongoing support.

    Hours
     
    The library is open 30 minutes before school (7:30) and 30 minutes after school (3:15). It also is open during one lunch period each day. It is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for 7th and 8th graders, and it is open Tuesday and Thursday for 6th graders. 
     
    Loan Period 
     
    Students may have up to 10 items checked out at any one time; the loan period is three weeks. Students may renew materials they need for longer than three weeks; they just need to bring the book or magazine to the library in order to renew it. This policy helps students keep track of the materials they borrow. A student may check out library materials as long as he or she doesn’t have any overdue (or lost) items. If the student has an overdue item, it’s a simple matter of returning it or bringing it to the library to renew it in order to check out additional items. There are no fines for overdue books; however, students are responsible for lost or damaged materials.
