Guidelines and Policies

G. C. Hawley Media Center Policies



Students may check out a maximum of two books at a time for a period of two weeks.


Renewing Books 

If you are not finished with a book by the due date, please renew the book.  Books may be renewed a total of three times.


Late Books

Students are responsible for keeping track of when their books are due.  Please return your books on time so that other students have an opportunity to check them out.  Nobody enjoys waiting for an irresponsible person to return an overdue book.  


G. C. Hawley Middle School does not charge fines for late books.  However, if a book is overdue for more than 2 weeks, the media staff will assume that the book is lost and send a notice home requesting that you pay for the lost book.  Please bring overdue books to the media center to return or renew them.


Lost or Damaged Books

Students are responsible for paying to replace lost or damaged books.  

Students cannot check out other books until they pay to replace lost or damaged books.

Students will not receive their final report card until they pay to replace lost or damaged books.   


Behavioral Expectations

All students are expected to behave according to the school-wide expectations.  In addition, the school library has the following expectations: 

  • Food, drink, and gum are not allowed in the media center except for special occasions determined by the school administration and the media center staff.
  • You may talk, but please control your voice level so that you do not disturb other students trying to read or complete assignments.
  • Students must have a pass from a teacher to visit the media center without supervision.
