BMS Library Expectations

1. Respect

We will show respect in the way that we speak to others, conduct ourselves, and take care of materials in the library media center.

2. Accountability

We will sign in when we come to the library for open library and after school. Student safety is our number one concern and we need to account for you when you are here in case of emergency.

3. Stay on the Main Floor

We will stay on the main floor of the library media center. The stadium seating and upper floor are available only when an adult is supervising students there.
