Hours Circulation Staff Databases Schedule



The Library is open each school day from 8:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Students come with their class once a week for an information literacy lesson and to checkout materials for personal and school use. They are welcome in the Library, however, at any other time that meets their needs during the school day.

Loan Period: 1 week (renewals are fine if no “holds” exist)

The MPSA Library supports each student’s right to read. Our staff appreciates that each child has unique needs when it comes to borrowing library materials. To that end, we have put a circulation policy in place that strives to flexibly meet the individual need. Students are asked to be kind, fair, responsible, and curious in their library materials choices.  Students are taught to borrow what they can reasonably carry and return on time in the same condition in which it was originally lent to them.


  1. Primary students check out one book at a time until the teachers and library staff agree the children understand the concept of borrowing.
  2. Certain highly popular series, authors, or topics will be limited in the number checked out to a single student’s record at the discretion of library staff.
