    The Union Park Library Media Center (LMC) collection consists of more than 10,000 items, available to students, staff and parents. Additionally, the LMC has chrome box computers with google chrome and access to the Internet. The LMC is open daily from 7:30 AM-4:00 PM for staff members and 8:00 AM-3:15 PM for students. The LMC closes 12-12:30 daily for lunch.

    Children from kindergarten through the 8th grade may check out books as follows:
    • Kindergarten - 1 book for 1 week
    • 1st Grade - 1 book for 1 week
    • 2nd Grade - 2 books for 2 weeks
    • 3rd - 5th Grades - 2 books for 2 weeks
    • 6th Grade- 1 book for 2 weeks
    • 7th/8th Grades 1 book for 2 weeks
    Books may be renewed once if there are no holds on the title. Students are required to renew the book on the due date. Library privileges are suspended until an overdue book is returned, renewed or paid for if lost/damaged. Fines for damaged or lost books may be paid at this link.Library Fine Payment. This is available for library book fines as well as chrome book fines.

    It is suggested to students that books be kept in a Gallon sized zip-lock bag in backpacks when not being read. This will allow students to have their books when it’s their day to visit the LMC and to protect them from harm. Please be mindful of water bottles placed in backpacks. This can quickly ruin books! Always use the outside holders.

    Please remember…, students are responsible for the books they check out. If a book is damaged/lost,the student will be asked to pay for the book. Until the book is paid for or returned, a student’s check out privileges are suspended. The care of books helps maintain our library collection for all of our students. These fines help to purchase replacement copies of damaged/lost books.

    Finally, if parents would like to limit the number of books their child can check out, they may do so by contacting Jessica Dittman at Jessica.Dittman@dvusd.org.

    Computers are available for student use during regularly scheduled class visits as well as for students on passes. They may be used for assigned class work, research,  and testing. Students and parents/guardians must read and understand the Internet and E-mail User Agreement and both must sign the Acknowledgements and Verifications form before students are allowed to use the computers. Computers are monitored and privileges can be canceled for violations of this agreement.
