Media Center

Hi, my name is Mrs. Durrant and I am the Media Specialist at Mt. Nebo Junior High. Welcome to the Media Center! I hope all of you will take the time to drop in and visit, see the wonderful collection of books (both fiction and non-fiction) that we have for your use, as well as the computer lab available to you both during school as well as before and after. I am excited to be able to help each and every one of you as I believe that reading is the most important skill that a person can develop.

Accessing Your Account

All students may access their own account by loging in to the Follett System. Their log-in name is their student number and their password is their last name. Students may develop their own reading list, keep track of books checked out and their due date, select a book to read from lists developed by teachers,  recommend and review books they have read, etc.

Hours

7:30 a.m. to 2:50 p.m. Monday through Friday, except school holidays and Monday afternoon when the Media Center is close after school for collaboration. When coming to the Media Center during the school day, please make sure that you have your planner or a classroom pass from your teacher.

Checking Out Books

Students may have out three books at any one time from the library, unless there are any overdue books or fines assessed. The loan period is two week with one additional renewal period of two weeks, unless the book is extremely popular at the time and then the loan period will be limited to 2 weeks with no renewal. Students must have their Student Photo ID with them to check-out books. Reference books are the only books in the Media Center that may not be check-out.

Fines

A book that is overdue on its loan period will be assessed a .10 a day fine and will continue to accumulate until the book is returned or paid for. Books that are damaged or lost will be assessed a repair fine or replacement cost of book. Students need to understand that any fine accrued at Mt. Nebo Junior High and not taken care of before a student leaves will continue to follow them to another school. As this could result in an extremely large and unnecessary fine, students Be Responsible and get your books in on time.
