Welcome to the Marshfield High School Library Media Center

Breanne Rost - Library Media Specialist

I have been working in the MHS LMC since 2010. I spent two years as the Library Aide before taking over as the Library Media Specialist in 2012. Before coming to MHS I graduated with a business management degree and worked at a software company for 7 years. Since coming to MHS I have taught Computer Applications in the classroom, finished my masters degree in education, and become a Student Council Co-Advisor.

Reading

Book and Magazine Checkout

Students may check out up to 5 items at a time in the LMC. We have a great selection of fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, and magazines for our students to check out.


Students can not check out any library materials if they have overdue books, library fines, or ID fines.

Overdrive Media: Online eBooks and Audiobooks

Students also have the opportunity to download eBooks and audiobooks to their personal devices. Our Overdrive Media online library can be accessed anywhere and any time you have internet access. Downloading the free Overdrive Media Console app makes this easy for all users.

Technology

Computer Stations

We have 16 computer stations that are available for use any time the library is open. These computers are used on a first come, first served basis. Please do not send your entire class to the library unsupervised to use these stations.

Mac Stations

We have four Mac stations that students may use for audio, video, and photo editing. These computers are reserved for projects that may need to utilize Apple's Garage Band, iMovie, or iPhoto programs. Assistance will be provided by Mrs. Rost on how to use the Mac.

A/V Equipment

The library has digital cameras, video cameras, tripods, and microphones for students to use on multimedia projects.

Movies

The library has popular full length movies available for students and teachers to check out. All movies are based on popular young adult books or are based on historical events, and nothing is rated above PG-13.

Other Things We Do

ID's

If a student has lost or forgotten his/her ID they may come to the library to purchase a replacement ID for $2.00. All ID fines will be handled through the library.

Parking Spaces

Students are required to purchase a parking space if driving a car to school. Parking spaces can be purchased in the library for $15.

Printers & Copy Machine

We are the home to two printers (MHS Library Main and MHS Library Main 2) and we also have a copier. The copier can be used by students at no cost for small copy jobs. DO NOT send students to the library to make more than 10 copies. Seriously, it might catch on fire if it makes more than 10 copies at a time.
