Welcome to Tyrrell Elementary School's Media Center!




Here are some things to remember when you come to the Media Center:

*You may check-out up to 2 books at a time (Kindergarten- 1 book).

*Remember to return your books to the drop box so that they can be checked back in to the library.

*If you only return 1 book, you can only check out 1 new book.

*Remember to look for AR books on your level by matching the colored sticker on the spine to your reading level. (See AR sticker level colors below)

*Grab and shelf marker and use it!  There are thousands of books in the Media Cenetr and they all have a very specific place on the shelf.  Using a shelf marker helps us to know where to put a book back if we decide not to get it.

*Put books back on the shelf standing tall with spines facing out.  This helps so that we can read the title and other important labels on the spines.

*Keep the Media Center clean and take care of your books so that others may enjoy them for many years to come!
