Students may also renew online by signing in to researcher: https://mcsd.goalexandria.com/researcher?site=MHS#_

Login: your short lunch #   (located on your student ID card)

Password: yourlastname

Students are typically allowed to renew an item unless someone has put in a hold or reservation for it.

Fines and Fees:

Students are charged 10¢ per item per school day for overdue items.

A fine is not assessed for weekends, holidays, or times the library is closed, such as testing days.

Student accounts remain in good standing and clear for checkout, unless they own $5.00 or more. If student fines are over $5.00, students must pay down their fees to return to unrestricted checkout. In the meantime a one-in, one out circulation policy will be in place.

Lost/Damaged Books:

Students are assessed a fee for the price of replacing a book if it is lost/damaged or 60 days overdue.
