Library Policies

Our library collection is small while we are building our new library space. Therefore, we are asking students to limit their check-outs to 2 books at a time. Students may return daily (or more often!) to check out more books as they finish the ones they have. Books are due in three weeks and can be renewed for another three weeks if no other student has a hold on the book.




Dorothy Hamm Middle School Library

Our ELs learned how to check out ebooks today. The room was silent at the end of class after everyone found a new ebook to read. What a great way to end the week! #engage @APSLibrarians https://t.co/W6k5E3UIX0
