The Charger Library is dedicated to fostering the creation of life-long learners. Through a collection composed of diverse informational texts and varied fiction titles, the Charger library promotes learning, creativity, critical thinking, and exploration.
The library program seeks to ensure that all students and faculty are effective and ethical users of ideas and information in all formats: whether print or digital in nature.
School Picture Day - Friday September 13th.
The Charger Library follows a "flexible" schedule.
Generally, such a schedule allows students to come to the library before school, during lunch, and after school as desired.
Teachers schedule the library for class presentations and activites in consultation with the librarian. Student access to the library may be limited during such scheduled events.
The library catalog system, “Destiny” is an on-line system that may be accessed from any internet-capable device.
Library books are checked out for a two-week period. One renewal period is available unless said book is on hold for another patron.
Most reference materials must remain in the library at all times.
Overdue notices are sent approximately monthly by email. Students are responsible to monitor due dates.
Books not returned within one week of the due date will be subject to a fine of $.10 per day, not to exceed $5.00 per book.
Lost or damaged books are the responsibility of the patron and a fine for the cost of replacement or a reasonable repair cost will be assessed to the patron.
Library fines are to be paid in the school office or online through the student’s “mydsd” account.
Inventory and Weeding
A regular inventory of the library collection is conducted
Periodic weeding of worn or outdated material is essential to maintain an appealing collection.
All weeded materials are disposed of according to district policies.
Purchasing is the responsibility of the library teacher as delegated to them by the school board.
Weeded materials that are in high demand due to wear or damage will be replaced as funds allow.
Student and Teacher recommendations are welcomed and will be given priority when feasible.
The Library Media DESK focuses and prioritizes the reading and information literacy skills that students need to know and be able to use to help them read and research effectively in all subjects and with a variety of technologies.
