Eisenhower Library Mission Statement
To help students and staff become
lifelong learners and effective users of ideas and information,
we accomplish this mission
- Providing a current, relevant collection of books, audio books,
and other media.
- Providing open, flexible access to the library collection for the school community.
- Collaborating with teachers to teach information literacy skills
within their curriculum and as a part of library-based projects.
- Fostering a love of literature through reading incentive programs such
as the Lone Star Readers, Ike book clubs, and trivia contests.
- Encouraging students and faculty to be lifelong learners through special
programs and events, such as author visits and Book Fairs.
- Providing access to the Internet and other electronic information resources,
with instruction for their use.
- Supporting the curriculum and Campus Plan through collaborative teaching
and collection development.

We are not open before school when
we have faculty meetings (usually 1st and 3rd Wednesdays).
Occasionally we are closed before or after school because of a
meeting or special event.
Borrowing & Fines Policies
- Students may check out up to four books
at a time for a two-week period. Due to popularity and
availability, we ask students to check out a limit of 1 audio book or
Lone Star title at a time. Reference books may NOT be checked
out, unless arranged with the library staff.
- Students may renew an item or items before or on the due date if they need more time, but not if the item is overdue.
- If there is a hold/request for a particular or popular item currently checked out, students may not be able to renew that item, depending on the
situation; the library staff will decide on renewals on a case-by-case
basis to provide fair access to materials for all students and
- If a student has an
overdue item, and has also placed a hold/is on a waiting list for an
item, s/he may be bumped to the end of the waiting list for any holds
until the overdue items are returned and any fines cleared.
- There is a 10 school-day grace
period after the due date before fines are charged for overdue items.
Fees charged after the 10 school-day grace period are $.10/day per
item. Payments for fines can be made via cash or check,
made out to Eisenhower Middle School.
- If students are unable to
pay a fine, arrangements
can be made with the library staff to volunteer in the library until
their fines are cleared.
- Any fines or lost
materials must be cleared/paid for before students' borrowing
privileges are resumed.
- Parents may check out books.
Students accessing the Internet in the Library are required to
have a AUP/permission form on file. Internet access
in the library is limited to school-related assignments and is not for
personal entertainment purposes.
Besides saving documents to their
personal network folders, students should save their documents to
their own flash drive/USB key, a floppy disk, or a CD.
