About the Middle School Library

How many library books may I check out at any one time?

Students may borrow up to five books at one time. If you have overdue books, please renew them or return them to the library so that they are available for other readers to check out.

How long can I borrow a book for?

Library books may be borrowed for three weeks. You may renew books you are reading, as long as there is no one waiting for it.

If I bring a book back late, is there a fine?

No, we do not charge fines for late books.

What do I do if I can't find a library book I checked out?

Let Ms. Hartley-Maneri know as soon as possible.

I need help with research. What do I do?

Ask your librarians for help!

I need help with my device, or I have another tech question - what do I do?

Ask Ms. Aronofsky at the Knowledge Bar! If it's an emergency and she is not there, Ms. Hartley-Maneri or Ms. Indick can usually help!

BC Library Mission Statement

The mission of the Berkeley Carroll Libraries aims to support the broader aim of the Berkeley Carroll School, as well as its unique status  as the heart of each division. The library strives to:

  • foster a creative and intellectual community where devoted librarians challenge, and engage students with both quality information, and a robust library collection that nurtures a passion for reading
  •  grow the necessary skills required of today’s increasingly digital world, all of which live under the growing umbrella of information: digital literacy, media literacy, visual literacy, and beyond
  • provide a space for gathering, and act as a center in the school for the entire community - including students, teachers, and administration - to read, collaborate, engage, and reflect
