MMS Library Information
The library opens each morning at 7:00 am and has become a popular spot on campus before the official start of the school day. Students are welcome (40-45 maximum capacity) to come in to study, research, return books, browse and check out a book(s), enjoy a magazine or newspaper, take an AR test, shop at the spirit “store”, mail a letter, or just READ before school. The Library is open from 7:00-7:25 to any 4th, 5th, or 6th grade student on Mondays & Fridays. We reserve the library before school for 4th grade students on Tuesday mornings, 5th grade students on Wednesday mornings, & 6th grade students on Thursday mornings. We close daily at 2:41.
We are pleased to announce that we have renewed our online subscription to Accelerated Reader which includes the STAR assessment as well. This means that students have access to more than 160,000 books!
Each class has a weekly scheduled library lesson. These lessons are designed to enhance the St. Tammany Parish curriculum and provide resources that support Common Core.
Checking out Books:
Each patron is welcome to check out one or two books at a time for a two week period. Books are allowed to be renewed once before they are placed back into circulation.
Students with overdue books are charged a nickel per school day until the overdue book is returned. There is a maximum fine of $1.00 per book. The book must either be returned or paid for in full.
Celebrate your child’s birthday by donating a book to the Library. Just donate $25.00 and fill out the appropriate form. This allows the librarian to purchase a hardback book for MMS library in your child‘s honor. The book will be presented to your child with a book plate including your child’s name and details of the special occasion. In addition, your child will be the first student to check out the book and when the book is returned, it will be added to the general circulation.
