    Our Philosophy

    It is the goal of the library to promote information literacy to our students. Information literacy is defined as the ability to find and use information and is the keystone of lifelong learning. Today's library has moved beyond a room of books to become an active, technology-rich learning environment. We strive to offer services, technology and programs that support students, staff and the school community with the most effective and current research methods for both print and digital resources.

                                                                                                                   

     The mission of the MRHS Library/Media staff is to work collaboratively with teachers and students to support academics, to promote reading for pleasure and information, and to prepare our community of learners with life-long skills necessary to be competent, critical, ethical, and independent seekers and users of information.

    The mission of Mountain Ridge High School is to provide real world connections within 
    highly engaging classrooms that prepares graduates to meet the rigors and demands of 21st century global citizens.

     

     Behavior Expectations

    During our open times, students may research, read, and study. Students found using the library and/or its resources for any reason other than educational research, reading or study will be warned that they are in violation of school guidelines and may be asked to leave and/or receive a discipline referral. Students found using technology for any reason other than educational are in violation of the district's Internet agreement and may lose computer privileges.

    We ask that you do not bring gum, candy, food or drink into the library. Please remember to respect others by using proper manners. Disruptive or disturbing behavior is unacceptable and will result in a request to leave the premises.

     

    Circulation

    • A student ID is required to check out books.
    • Only 2 books maybe checked out at one time.
    • Books are checked out for 2 weeks.
    • There is a .20 cent fine per day per book for overdue books.
    • No additional check out is allowed to students who have overdue books.

    Students will receive overdue notices on a timely basis. Contacted students who do not return or take advantage of the renew option, may loose parking and/or graduation privileges. Students with outstanding fines have lost the privilege of checking out books.
