Welcome to the Media Center at East Union
Each student will come for ½ hour of Media and Technology class and ½ hour of book checkout time during the week. Students are welcome to come to the media center on an individual basis any time during the week with their teacher’s permission.
Book Checkout :
Kindergarten and First Grade—2 books
Second and Third Grade—4 books (2 of these to be kept in their classroom)
Fourth and Fifth Grade—4 books
Checkout period is 2 weeks. Students who need more time may renew a book twice if no one else is waiting for the book.
Check out period is two weeks; students may renew books during their media time. Books may be returned to the basket located in each classroom or brought to the drop box in the media center.
We do not charge fines for overdue books. Students with an overdue book are not allowed to check out another book until the overdue book has been returned. Overdue notices will be sent at least once a trimester. We do our best to properly check in books. If your child receives an overdue notice and believes the book has been returned, please have your child ask Mrs. Simon to check the shelves again. Parents should also feel free to call or email me to check the library shelf for the missing book. You can always verify the books your child has checked out by using your child’s user name and password to Destiny Quest or by checking Parent Portal.
Lost & Damaged Books:
Students who have lost or damaged a book will be expected to pay the replacement cost of the item. Since many of our books are special library bound books we ask that you do not purchase a replacement copy since trade bindings do not hold up to library use. Checks for the replacement cost can be made payable to EUE and brought to the media center or school office.
