Welcome to the McMurray Library

    Thank You, PIE, for Supporting Vashon School Libraries

     
    As our district website states, we want our students to develop an “understanding of the connectedness of world cultures, what makes a good citizen, and the importance of each citizen’s contribution to the greater whole.” The books we've purchased this year with a generous grant from PIE support our goal of guiding students toward global awareness, citizenship, and stewardship. Books play a vital role in helping our students develop a worldview that embraces cultural diversity and civic responsibility.

    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 6th and 7th graders, and it is open Tuesday and Thursday for 8th 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.
