Do you have a library book checked out, that’s due today? Have no worries! On days that the library closed, for #BCstorm or some other reason, your due date will automatically be updated to the next day the library is open — and no late fines are added to your account for days the library is closed. So read on!

*Remember that masks are required for all staff and students when indoors (unless they qualify for an exemption), and this includes the library — whether you’re at a table, on a computer, or browsing for a book. If you came wearing a mask, please do not take off your mask as soon as you sit down.
— Next time you’re in the library, don’t miss this! —
Books on this cart are FREE to a good home — take as many as you’d like.
And as the books are taken and the cart empties, new books will be added, so check back often!
Yes! The library is open — stop by before or after school, at lunch, with your classes, during your study …
Have you noticed anything different? There were some changes made since last time the library doors were open!
There are hundreds of books on display, stop by and check them out!
Even though the library doors are open again this year, the Book Bundle remains!
Don’t know what to read, or what to even begin searching for in the library catalog?
Do you like surprises or trying new things?
TRY A BOOK BUNDLE!
Simply answer a couple of questions HERE and let the Librarian surprise you with a stack of stories! You will be sent a Schoology message when your Book Bundle is ready to pick-up at the Library.
And if you’ve requested a Book Bundle before, you can again! There’s no limit.
The library catalog is switching to a new & improved website for next year — the current catalog will not be available after June 25.
Info on how to find and login to the new library catalog will be included in the back-to-school newsletter sent from MEI Secondary Library. Keep an eye on @meilibrary on social media this summer!
Tomorrow, June 15 is RETURN DAY!
If you need a reminder of what TEXTBOOKS or LIBRARY BOOKS you currently have checked out, login to your library account at bit.ly/meilibrary.
You will be called to the library with your last class of the day tomorrow, to return everything all at once.
Avoid stress and guarantee you’ll receive your YEARBOOK on the last day of classes. BY JUNE 9 make sure you take care of any outstanding issues — pay all School Cash Online fees, return all 1-3 quarter textbooks, pay library fines, etc. Ms. Penner has waived all late fines, extending a little kindness in these unusual COVID days. Only replacement or damage fees remain, and need to be paid for by June 9.
JUST A WORD OF CAUTION: If there are still outstanding issues on your account, you will not receive your yearbook when everyone else does.

**A quick how-to for paying library fines, including a reminder to email Ms.Penner the School Cash Online receipt so she can update your library account >> https://thebeak.edublogs.org/about/pay-library-fines-online/
Note: if you returned your Q1-3 textbooks last week, don’t worry if they still show on your library account as they may not have been checked in yet
