LMC Policies for Class & Student Library Use

The Hannah Pamplico High School Library Media Center welcomes students and classes to the library for reading, checkout, quiet study, research, and computer use. To that end, the following policy will govern the use of the facility.

Class Use

Teachers desiring to bring their entire class to the library should sign up for library or lab use in the “Lab/Library Use Notebook” write in the notebook the # of students and area to be used with a brief objective for the class. Insert a copy of your plans and student worksheet behind the weekly schedule. Inform the MS if assistance with the assignment is needed. Teachers are to stay with and monitor their class. Signing up to bring a class to the library entitles a teacher to “first rights” to the library computers. It does not, however, close the library to all other users. Should a problem arise with scheduling, media center availability, or media specialist availability, every effort will be made to notify teachers as soon as the problem is identified.

Policies and Procedures


Students must have a permit (agenda) from the teacher to come to the library media center during the day—including lunch period. No permit is needed before or after school.


Books may be checked out for two weeks. Three books may be checked out at one time if they are not used in research or belong to a special collection.

Overdue Fines

Five (5) cents per day will be charged for overdue books—school days only. Fines begin five days after the due date (grace period). All debts should be paid at the time of book return.

Food and Beverage

Food and beverages are not allowed in the computer and general reading/instructional areas.


All black and white copies are $0.10 per page. Color copies are $0.25 per page. Payment is due when copies are made.

Computers/ Internet

Students and staff members must have a signed Internet User Policy (AUP) on file in the LMC. Computers must be checked out at the circulation desk by everyone. A user card for a specific station will be issued to the patron and must be displayed in the pocked on the matching computer #. The computers are reserved for educational purposes only. NO CHAT ROOMS; NO GAMES; NO DOWNLOADS are permitted. Computer privileges will be revoked for failure to comply with the district and school policies.

TIPS and other bright ideas (Library Media Center)

Topic Bingo
You can make Bingo games for nearly any subject by creating cards with answers to questions. For example, entries for math can by answers to equations and entries for vocabulary can be answers to the meaning of the words. A few other topics could be war facts (generals, battles, and other topics). Making the game can be time consuming, but it can be used over and over. This is a great way to get students involved in a class review.

Copyright Info
Q) Can you use YouTube in the Classroom? If curriculum writers find a video on YouTube that is scientifically correct and is appropriate for the high school classroom, could they use a YouTube video as a part of the curriculum?
A) There are a lot of issues her to consider. The first is “Does the district have a policy on using YouTube?” That’s not a copyright issue, but it may be controlling in this case. There is much o YouTube that is inappropriate, so the district filter may not let it in.
On the copyright front, there is a lot on YouTube that isn’t there legally. Episodes of The Sopranos, parts of movies and TV programs, and others are on YouTube. There are also videos posted without the permission of the a) creators, and b) actors. Remember that everything school-fair-use-wise is predicated on a “legally acquired” copy of the work. If the work is not legal, you can’t show it in school regardless of how good it is.
Associate Professor and author of copyright books, Carol Simpson stated that “curriculum should not be built around ay of the YouTube videos. They are pretty ephemeral”
