Welcome to the Winder-Barrow High School Media Center.
Hours of Operation:
8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Media Center Procedures:
Students must have a pass to the media center signed by a staff member (teacher) who is responsible for them during that class period. Students must sign in and out upon arrival and when exiting the media center in the book located on the circulation desk.
Food or drinks are allowed at the tables in the media center. No food or drinks should be at computers or in the book shelves.
Checking-Out & Returning Books:
Students can use Destiny Discover to search for books online at https://search.follettsoftware.com/metasearch/ui/43864 or download the APP or download the APP to their device. Students can sign into Destiny Discover using their ID(lunch) number as the login and password. Once logged in, students may place a book on hold and they will receive an email to their school email when the book is ready to be picked up.
Students are responsible for all media center books that are checked out to them. If a book is needed for more than two weeks, students need to come by the media center with their books and renew them for another two weeks. Only 2 books may be checked out to a student at one time. If students have an overdue book, they may not check out any new material until it has been returned and the fine paid. (This does not apply to non bar-coded paperbacks. Please ask the media staff for location of paperback books.) Magazines are also available for use in the media center.
The due dates are stamped in the front of the books when checked out and a book is considered late the following day. Students will be charged 5 cents a day until the book is returned or paid for. Returning an overdue book does not excuse the incurred late fee. Students will be notified by automated phone calls and overdue notices in advisement sessions. Students are responsible for clearing their accounts at the end of each semester. Cash or money order will be accepted. Please see, call, or email media staff if you have any questions about an overdue book.
If students lose or damage a book, they are responsible for paying for it. All media center books must be returned or paid for before graduation. Senior accounts must be cleared before graduation practice or they will not be permitted to walk.
