Welcome to the Causey Middle School Library!!

Library Media Specialists Ms. Streety and Ms. Brooks are happy you visited our page today!

Causey Middle School Library Procedures

You must have your ID badge to check out books! Remember, your badge is part of your uniform!

You may come to the library with a pass from your teacher at any time. You will also be coming with your classes as well.

You may check out two books at a time for two weeks. You may renew your book after two weeks if you are not finished reading it. You cannot check out another book if you have an over due book or if you have lost a book. You are responsible for your library book no matter what happens to it!

You may put a book on hold if someone else has it checked out.

Return books to the book drop at the circulation desk. The bookdrop is facing the 6th grade hall.

REMEMBER!!!

While in the library: Speak quietly. Be respectful to others around you. Push your chair back up to the table. No drinks, candy, or gum in the library!

We hope you enjoy your visits to the library this year!
