The mission of the Brightwood Elementary School Media Department is to design and implement a media program that will meet the needs of all students, teachers, and staff to ensure that they are effective users of ideas and information within their community.
- Kindergartners may check out one book at a time.
- 1st-3rd graders may check out two books at a time.
- 4th-5th graders may check out unlimited quantities of books as long as no overdue books are checked out. If any items are overdue, one book at a time may be checked out until overdue items are returned.
- Books are due two weeks (10 school days) from the time they are checked out. Please renew unfinished books.
- Students are welcome in the media center during open circulation times with a barcode card. Open circulation times are 7:00-7:40 AM and other times as available. Come on in to check!
- Teachers may schedule checkout and/or research times for their classes in addition to regular media times. See Ms. Pendleton for scheduling and computer tutorial.
