                       TCA LIBRARY/MEDIA CENTER POLICIES:

Teachers, students and parents can search the TCA catalog of books. The Media Center has a collection of approximately 5,500 books. Students can browse the collecion of books in the TCA online catalog here.

Link to TCA’s catalog of library books. You can email ldelesha@twincitiesacademy and I will place a book on hold for a student.  Please give me the name of the student and the name of the book and the author.

Borrowing from TCA Library/Media Center:

 All Library/Media patrons are able to have up to 2 books checked out at one time.  Books can be checked out for 2 weeks. Overdue book notices are emailed home twice per month. We are a small library and it is important to return books in a timely manner so others may read them.  Thank you.

Checking out books when the Librarian is not on duty:

If the Librarian, Ms. Delesha is not available, students need to check out their book(s) on the clipboard located on the front desk.  Students should list their first and last name, name of book, grade and the books barcode (usually a 4 or 5 digit number.) If a student already has two books checked out or overdue books, then the student should not check out any more books.

Hours:

The Library/Media Center is open every day from 8:15 am – 4:00 pm.  The Librarian, Ms. Delesha is available in the Library on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and all other days via email.  Students wishing to use the Library/Media Center need a pass from their teacher.

Overdue Materials:

Students with 2 overdue books may not check out additional books.  Overdue notices are emailed to parents twice a month and paper copies are given to students during Advisory.  Any student receiving an overdue notice for an item he/she has already turned in should report the error to the Media Specialist, Ms. Delesha.

Replacement of Materials/Charges for Lost Items:

We will accept an exact or better replacement copy of any lost item.  To pay for an item, please speak to the Library/Media Specialist, Ms. Delesha.

End of Year Check-Out:

Students must have all library books returned before they leave for the summer.
