Media Center


Welcome!

Butler Avenue Media Center is a partial flexible access library which meets the needs of the students, parents, and teachers. We are open daily from 7:45 until 3:30 providing resources throughout the day. Students visit the library upon the discretion of the teacher. Students also visit the library for resource classes on a fixed schedule. We encourage volunteers from the community. If you would be interested in volunteering, please contact the librarian using the listed contact information.

The Standards for the 21st Century Learner impart a vision of the school librarian as an educational leader. Please visit the Standards for the 21st Century Learner to become informed.

Library Policies

Media Center Rules/Policies

Overdue Books
Students are not charged for overdue books. However, books should be returned in a timely manner so others may use the books.

Lost Books/Damaged Books
The fine for lost/damaged book will be based on the replacement cost at the time of the payment. If the book is lost, patrons are encouraged to look for the book for at least one circulation period (2 weeks) before paying the fine. Students are only allowed to check out one book until the fine is paid. (If they have lost/damaged two books, then the student is not allowed to check any books out until the fines are paid.) During this period, the teacher may opt to check out a book for the student, but this book is not to leave BAS campus. Once a fine is paid, the item becomes the property of the patron. There will be no refunds. Unpaid library fines will result in the report card being held at year end.

Students should enter with an AR folder.
  1. Students are only allowed to check out two books at a time. Second graders check out one book, unless given permission by their teacher.
