Learning Commons FAQs:
What's the difference between Media and the Learning Commons? The Learning Commons is the space itself, while Media is the curriculum being taught. Thus, your child has Media classes in the Learning Commons each week. In the past, the room itself had been called the Media Center, but the district changed that terminology years ago in order to better encompass all the different types of curriculum, events, and activities that take place in the space. All kinds of learning occur in this common space.
When is a book overdue? The student may keep a book out for 3 weeks. Reminders will go out to parents after 4 weeks. With younger students, we encourage them to return their books each week to build good habits.
What do we do if a book is lost? First, please look again and ask your child to join in the search if they haven't already. Then simply let our Media Assistant Mrs. Robbins know (firstname.lastname@example.org), and she will advise you of the replacement cost. You can either replace the book yourself or pay the replacement cost.
Can I volunteer to help shelve books? Yes, this year we would love to return to having library volunteers. Please email Mrs. Robbins if you are interested.
