Mission

The Library Media Center (LMC) is dedicated to providing access to current, adequate and appropriate information resources and to ensure that all students and staff members are effective users of ideas and information. The LMC provides materials to support the MHS curriculum and the recreational reading needs of the MHS community. It houses a collection of over 19,000 volumes, a 12 computer drop in lab, production lab, instructional area, internet cafe and several study areas.

Policies & Procedures
Students may check out as many library materials needed to meet their goals. All students are held responsible for returning library materials in good condition and in a timely fashion. They are charged a replacement fee for missing or damaged materials and diplomas are withheld until payment is received. Until fees are cleared, students will not have library borrowing privileges. The Library Media Center gives students and families the opportunity to work off the amount of fines at the current hourly minimum wage. Library staff assigns duties and work schedule must be set and agreed upon by both the student and library staff.
