Students may check out books any time between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. while school is in session.
Students may check out 2 books at a time unless teachers have requested other arrangements.
Books are checked out for a two week period. Books can be renewed for an additional two week period if more time is needed.
Classes come to the media center throughout the week to checkout books, do research, and to receive instruction in library skills.
If a child loses or damages a library book, he may not check out another book until the book in question is returned or paid for. If a student has outstanding library books or fees, his or her report card will be held.

INTRODUCING WMS CURBSIDE LIBRARY CHECKOUT!
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Any WMS student who is involved in distance/digital learning, including students on an A/B schedule. Once students are in-person at WMS 5 days a week, they will be able to check out books in the library.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
An email will be sent to your @barrowcountyschools.org email address when your holds are ready. You will have 3 school days to pick up your holds. After that, your hold will be deleted and the book(s) will be reshelved for other users.
After you get the email, come to WMS between the hours of 8:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Monday-Friday (regular school days only). Pull up to the front of the school and we will greet you at your car. You may call the school to let us know you are here. The number is 770-307-2972. Ask for the Media Center and your call will come to us.
Please stay in your car! We will bring your holds to you and take any book returns that you have.
HOW MANY BOOKS CAN I CHECK OUT?
You can have a total of 2 books checked out. This includes any library books from other BCSS schools. Make sure you check your library account when you place holds so you know what you need to return. We are happy to take returns from any BCSS school; we will get the books back to the correct BCSS school for you.
