Welcome to the Media Center
Welcome to the McLib!
The McLib is McIntosh High School's Media Center, or library, and it serves to connect students with resources to assist with and expand classroom learning. In the McLib, patrons can research, read, study, collaborate on projects, create products, and more. It is a work zone.
Hours of Operation
Media Center online resources can be found at the MHS Media Center organization on Blackboard.
Students who wish to use the media center during the school day must have a pass. Between classes, students should report to class first and then obtain a pass to come to the media center. At lunch, students should report to lunch, eat, and then use a pass to come to the media center. Daily lunch passes are available from the administration in the lunchroom. A yearly media center lunch pass may be obtained from the media specialist if a student plans to visit the media center during lunch on a regular basis (lunch procedures still apply). Yearly passes are a privilege and will be revoked if students continually fail to abide by the media center expectations.
Computers and Personal Devices
Students may use the media center computers to access classwork only. Students may not download programs to the computers unless given permission by the media specialist. Students are not allowed to use personal devices, including phones, in the media center.
Book Checkout and Fines
Books can be checked out for 2 weeks at a time and renewed for an additional 2 weeks if the items are not on hold. Students are charged $0.20/day per overdue book, and the replacement cost of damaged or lost books.
Students can place a hold on an item that is currently checked out. When the item is returned, the media specialist will contact the students via email to let them know that the item is being held for them in the media center.
