OMS Media Center
We are so excited you are here! The media center has something for everyone. Ms. Sturdivant and Ms. Tremble enjoy helping students find a good book, helping research for projects, providing technical help, and support students in making. They can be reached via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org (or) email@example.com
Meet your Librarian: Ms. Sturdivant
Stop by and ask me for a book recommendation. Feel free to recommend a book for the library! Check out our maker space where students and staff can create stuff, design for 3-D printing, and work as coders.
Meet your Media Assistant: Mrs. Tremble
Congratulations! As a middle school student you have the privilege and responsibility of using a school issued laptop. If you are a 6th grade student, your computer will stay plugged in your homeroom cart overnight. If you are a 7th or 8th grade student, you are welcome to take your computer home. We recommend leaving your charger at home so that it does not get lost or stolen, and so that you may charge your computer EVERY night. Your computer battery should last the entire school day when properly charged.
Computers MUST always be transported in a protective sleeve. You may use your own protective sleeve or purchase one from the media center or front office for $7.00.
Again, you are responsible for you computer and charger. Chargers cost $25.00 to replace. Anything not deemed as normal wear on you computer, such as permanently marking the plastic casing, will be viewed as defacing school property and a fine will be assessed.
Students should not put stickers on their school computers.
One last important note...please completely shut down (not restart) your computer at least once a week. This gives your computer a chance to check for updates.
There is always something happening at the OMS library! You may come to the library before and after school. Please get a pass from you classroom teacher and have him/her contact us before visiting during the day. We may have a class in session at that time.
Students are limited to (3) books for (3) weeks. We do not charge late fees, however, YOU are responsible for returning your book(s) in GOOD condition. If you completely neglect to turn in your book(s), you will not be allowed to check out more books until the late book(s) is returned.
Damaged or lost books are assessed a fee based up the purchase amount of the book and the extent of the damage. Students who wish to work off their fees instead of paying cash may do so by filling out a Student Work Form. You may pick up a Student Work Form from the library.
Now, on to the fun stuff....
We have an extensive genre list, again, we have something for everyone! Whether you like fiction or non fiction...we've got it. We love helping students find a good read, just ask! If there is a title you do not see on our shelves, please ask! If we do not have it, and it is middle school appropriate, we will gladly add it to our future purchase list and our "Book Request" board.
We offer technological support for staff and students, before, during, and after school.
There is a large student supply area near the entrance of the library. Students are welcome to use these materials in the library.
- Students are allowed to print materials for school use only. You may email the item(s) you wish to be printed to Ms. Sturdivant or Mrs. Tremble. We will print first thing in the morning and at the end of each school day. You may pick up your copy(s) in the media center. If you wish to have your item(s) printed during the day, you may email the item(s) to your teacher and they can send it to the printer.
