Library Bill of Rights

The MHS library media center is an academic library that is used primarily by classes allowing the remaining space open to students with study hall or honor passes.

Always check the main door for availability and make certain you speak with one of the librarians if you see your hour closed due to classes.

We can't always accommodate you but we will most certainly try to fit you in if you need to use the resources within the library.


At what time does the library open? When does it close? The library opens each morning at 7:00 a.m. and closes between 3:15 and 3:25 depending on meeting schedules.
 
How can I use the library during the school day? The Mukwonago High School library is available to all students. To use this facility during the school day you must have a library pass from one of your instructors, not your studyhall teacher.
 
Check the main library doors for hours that may be closed or limited due to classroom use.

 
Where is the book card catalog? Our card catalog, Destiny, is in the Library & Reference folder in Class Applications or from the library page Find a Book.
 
How many items may I check out at once? You may have as many items as you wish checked out at one time, but we recommend only having 2 - 4 items at one time, as the check out time frame is just under three weeks.
 
Can I check out magazines? Yes, all back issues of our magazines can be checked out. You may keep magazines one week. There is a late fine of .10¢ per day.
Current issues may not be checked out.

 
Can I check out videos? Audio books? DVDs? Yes. Videos and DVDs may be checked overnight. Audio books may be kept for one week.
 
How much money will I owe if I return my books late? Fines on books are .10¢ per day late per item; this does not include weekends or vacation days. Special fines may apply for short term items.
 
What happens if I lose a book? You are responsible for paying the price to replace the book or you may buy the book yourself to replace the lost item. The books must be identical i.e. hardcover = hardcover, book must be new and so on.
 
Do I need to have my library card with me if I want to check out books? Your library card is actually your school ID. Have that with you at all times to be able to check out materials from the library.
 
Can I renew a book? Yes, you can renew a book or magazine if no one else has placed a hold on that item.

Do you have any color printers? Yes, but you must first ask one of the librarians and we print the document for you. The cost for a color copy is .25¢ per page.
