Laingsburg Middle School Media Center

At Laingsburg Middle School, 6th and 7th grade students come to the library once a week with their class. Eighth grade students are encouraged to visit the library during their lunch hour or before their afternoon special.

The library at Laingsburg Middle School is staffed with volunteers who are dedicated to matching students with the right books, whether they are reading for pleasure or working on a project. Our library provides an organized collection of resources that includes many popular titles for pleasure reading as well as for curriculum support and research.

In addition to weekly library classes, the Media Center is open daily during lunch hours for students who are looking for a quiet spot to relax. The Media Center is host to a variety of activities, including a fall book fair during parent/teacher conferences and a spring book fair during Grandparents' Day.

Checkout Policy

  • Students may check out up to two books at one time, with with the exception of report books for which there is no limit.
  • Students have the books for two weeks, but they may be renewed as needed.
  • Students may check out books during their weekly library visit, as well as during their lunch hours and other times when the library is open and no class is in session.
  • If a book is lost, a family may either replace the book with an identical copy from a bookstore or may pay for the book and a replacement copy will be ordered. If the book is later found and returned in good condition, parents will be reimbursed for the cost of the book. Once the book has been reported as lost, a child may begin checking out books again.

Volunteers help in many different ways at the libraries ... from assisting students during library visits to shelving books and working the circulation desk. Interested in becoming a library volunteer? Please contact the school office at 517-651-5034 ext.1009.
