SEMESTER SWAP SURVIVAL 101

from MEI Secondary Library

the end is near!

TIP: After you go to your final classes of semester 1, return to the library whatever textbooks you won’t need to study for finals!


ALL semester 1 textbooks must be returned to the library no later than 4pm on Thursday January 23. After that time, replacement textbooks will be purchased for the semester 2 classes and you will be charged the replacement cost even if the textbook is returned later.

Wondering what textbooks you have checked out?

Login to your library account to check what you have checked out, to renew library books, or see if you have any fines. Not sure how? Take a peek at the my MEI library tutorial for step-by-step directions.

Looking for a quiet spot to study for your finals? Here’s a look at the hours the library will be open during Exam Week.

Parts of the library are being used for writing exams this week so the library is a quite study zone. If you want to hang out with friends before or after exams, please head somewhere else out of respect to the exam-writers!

a few other exam reminders ...

  • Be at the school at least 15 minutes before your exam
  • Dress code applies all week—so no hats
  • Devices that can receive messages or use WiFi need to be turned off and put in your backpack.
  • Bring pencils/pens/calculators in a clear bag.

What about semester 2 textbooks?

On the 2nd day of 2nd semester, all students will be coming with their classes to the library for TEXTBOOK DAY -- they will check out all of their semester 2 textbooks at this time.
