Mt. Vernon High School Library Media Center
Monday - Friday 8:15 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
The library at MVHS is staffed by one certified Teacher Librarian, one Library Media Assistant, and several student assistants. It is a bustling center of activity from the moment the doors open at 8:15 a.m. until the end of the school day. Scheduled classes and students from study halls, SRT, and lunches make up most of the patron visits on a daily basis.
When visiting the library, students are encouraged to checkout one to three books at a time. Books are due in three weeks after initial checkout. Students are notified via school email when material is overdue. Note: Parent contact will be made for extended overdue material. Renewal could be denied if there is a hold pending on a material. Students who have extended overdue/lost materials will be limited to one book per checkout until the account is clear.
All attempts will be made to repair damaged materials returned to the library. If material is not salvageable, the student will be charged a replacement fee. Unfortunately, refunds for found books once a lost fee is paid are no longer allowed by the Indiana State Board of Accounts.
The mission of the MVCSC Library Media Program is to foster a love of reading, provide opportunities for students to develop information literacy skills, and encourage lifelong learning habits. For further information, see MVCSC Collection Development Plan.
