Welcome to MMS's Library Page!

 
 
 
 
Hi, my name is Jackie Ingvardsen. I am the new Library Specialist here at MMS. I am looking forward to meeting all the wonderful students in our community.  I have a daughter who is a sophomore at Chico State University and a son who is a senior at Prospect High School. Both of my children attended Moreland Middle School, so it feels like coming home to be back here. I also have two dogs and a cat so life keeps me busy. In my free time I enjoy traveling, watching movies, spending time with family & friends and of course READING!

 

 

Q:   How many books can I check out?

A:   You may check out up to 2 books at a time, and keep them for two weeks before they are due.

Q:   Can I renew my books?

A:   Yes, I'm happy to renew your books if you need them longer than 2 weeks (unless I have students waiting to read the book).

Q:   Do you charge fines for overdue books?

A:   No. We do not charge overdue fines. We just want to get the book back into circulation as soon as possible so other students can read it.

Q:   Is the library open before or after school? 

A:   The library is not open before school, and only open for 10 minutes after school. But we will be open the entire school day--including break and lunch.

Q:   Do I need a pass to visit the library during lunch?

A:   No. We're going to try not having passes this year. The library is open to all, however, we need to maintain a quiet atmosphere for students who are reading or doing homework. Anyone who is being loud or disruptive will be asked to leave.

If you have any questions that weren't answered here, please contact me (contact information is at the bottom of the page), and I'll be happy to answer any questions you have.
