The Kendrick Media Center serves as an extension of the classroom. For information access skills instruction to have maximum effectiveness, it should be fully integrated with classroom course work and be jointly planned with the classroom teacher. Therefore, the media center utilizes flexible scheduling and cooperative planning with teachers.

  • The media center is open from 8:15 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. and available to students during the instructional day from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
  • Individual students may utilize the media center by obtaining a pass from their classroom teacher. Four students from each class may come to the media center at one time. Each student should have his/her own grid or pass.
  • Students are expected to follow the 3 R's on the Discipline Matrix while in the Media Center. Click here to see this document.
  • Schedules for the Media Center and equipment are available for planning.
  • Since library related projects involve so many questions that only the classroom teacher can answer, classes should not come to the Media Center when there is a substitute teacher.
  • Students and teachers are expected to adhere to copyright law. General guidelines can be see here.


  • Students, teachers and staff may check out materials after attending Media Center Orientation. Media Center Orientation will provide skills necessary to access materials, review circulation policies, demonstrate appropriate behavior and highlight AV equipment available.
  • Two books may be checked out or renewed for a two week period.
  • Reference materials, not including sets (such as encyclopedias) may be checked out overnight. Students may pick up these materials at the end of the day and return them by the beginning of the next school day. If overnight materials are not returned on time this privilege will be terminated.
  • Students with overdue books will not be allowed to check out any materials until the overdue book is returned. At the end of the school year, report cards for students with overdue or missing materials will be held until the materials are returned or paid for. New students will also not be allowed to check out materials until previous school debts have been satisfied.
  • Lost or damaged materials must be replaced or paid for by both students and staff. Books purchased for replacement must have library bindings.
  • This policy is supported by GA Law, Code 20-2-1013 (b) and GA Department of Education Policy, Code 160-5-1-12 (h).
