Library Policies


Students may check out non-fiction, fiction, story collection, graphic novels, manga, and audio books for a three-week period. These items may be renewed up to three times each by bringing the materials to the LMC. Reference books may be checked out overnight. Laptops and headphones are available for daytime checkout only.

Overdues and Fines

A 25 cents/day overdue fine is charged on all overnight and daytime-only materials. All other materials do not incur overdue fines. A lost item can be taken care of one of two ways:

  • Replace the item. This must be done within 1 year of the original checkout date to ensure that the record is still in the library automation system. The item must also be in the same format (hardback, paperback, etc.) and in new/like new condition.
  • Pay for the lost item. The replacement cost of the item will be printed on the overdue notice. Should the item be found at a later time, we will gladly refund your money (minus any overdue fines) or allow you to keep the item, if you replaced it. Make checks payable to Oakwood High School.

Student Expectations

Whether visiting the LMC with a class or during study hall, all students are expected to behave appropriately. Students who do not meet the behavioral expectations for the LMC may lose their LMC privileges temporarily. Student expectations are as follows:

  • All students who are not with a class and staying for more than a few minutes should sign in at the circulation desk and sign out upon leaving using the digital form. Students who sign out of the Library Media Center are expected to report back to class or study hall. Failure to do so constitutes “skipping” and will result in a detention.
  • Food and drinks are permitted, as long as all trash/recyclables ends up in the proper receptacle
  • Students should visit the LMC with an academic purpose: studying, reading, researching, checking out or returning a book, etc.
  • Printing is restricted to school-related assignments. Non-academic print jobs will be charged a fee of $.10/page for black and white copies.
  • Talking should be kept to a low volume.
  • All staff members, students, materials, equipment, and furniture should be treated respectfully.

Scheduling and Availability

Teachers may schedule their classes for the LMC or LMC Lab on a first-come, first-served basis. Students and teachers should understand that occasionally the LMC may be closed to drop-in students and during lunch due to class usage or meetings. Mrs. Ashworth does her best to ensure that all students have access to LMC resources as needed.
