Library Information

 The library is here for you. Don't hesitate to ask for help.

"He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever."
--Chinese Proverb

  • Library media materials are made available to support the curriculum and the mission statement of the Stratford public school district.

  • Our goal is to provide quality fiction and resource materials to students. Teachers meet and collaborate with the Library Media Specialist to plan units of study in the library.

  • Materials may be borrowed by any student or staff member. Students are expected to handle all materials with care.

  • Circulation: Most materials can be taken out for three weeks. All renewals are for an additional two weeks only. Magazines can be checked out for one week only. No renewal. The most current issue of a magazine can not be checked out.

  •  All overdue material must be returned, renewed or paid for if they are lost. Overdue items are charged a fine of          5 cents per day. Lost books are expected to be paid for so they can be replaced.

The LMC is a place for students to read, do homework, study and do research. Students are expected to behave in a courteous, respectful manner respecting the rights of other students in the LMC who need a quiet place to work. Boisterous or inappropriate behavior will result in restricted access to the LMC.
