Hasty's Media Center operates on both a fixed and a flexible checkout system, meaning students check out on their regular library day, but are also welcome to come to the Media Center and select materials all day, any day. Typically, students may have out 2 books at a time.
The regular checkout/enrichment times are as follows:
Mondays - 4th and 1st Grades
Tuesdays - 2nd Grade
Fridays - 5th and 3rd Grades
Wednesdays - Kindergarten
Overdue notices are sent home monthly. These are reminders for you and your child to help keep up with checked out items. Our students often read on the school bus, go to afterschool care and visit with relatives nearby, and books can be easily left behind.
Students typically checkout 2 books at a time. Students are allowed an extra book when a project is due. Books may be kept for 2 weeks, although students are encouraged to bring books in to trade for new ones as soon as they finish.
If you receive an overdue notice and think that the book has been returned, please write a note on the notice and have your child bring it back to the Media Center. Our staff will gladly look for the material. Quite often, Media Center books get mixed in with books on the classroom teacher's bookshelf, or hidden in the back of the desk. With the help of your child, we are usually able to locate the book somewhere here at school.
