Hello Wildcats,
     Our Library is now OPEN for curbside pick up!  Please be sure to use our Book Request Form to reserve library materials, and don't forget to have your parent fill out the Library Young Adult Permission Form.  The Library Young Adult Permission Form is mandatory for all students.  Thanks for being awesome!

Hello Wildcats!
     We are continuing to adapt our Library and programs to distance learning. To better support our Wildcat staff and parents, our SMS Library Media Center will offer curbside pick up of our library materials. 
  • Students will fill out a Library “Book Request” form in Google Forms, which populates into a spreadsheet for the Librarians.  Book Request Form
  • If the book is available for check out, it will be checked out for a two week period to the student.  Librarians will send a confirmation e-mail to the student’s school address when the title is ready for pick up.  Students will also be notified if a title is unavailable and they are placed on a “hold” list.
  • Once the student is notified by email that their title is available and the book is checked out to them, they will have one week to pick up their book.  Students may renew their book through an emailed request to the librarians, as long as no other students are waiting for the title.
  • Books ready for pick up will be labeled and placed on a book cart for curbside pick up.  Curbside pick up will be available 12:00-2:30 on school days.  Campus supervisors will be stationed near the front of the school to hand you your book and collect any book returns. 

Normal library policies still apply:


Students may check out circulating titles for a two-week period with renewal privileges for two additional weeks. When issued a book, your child assumes responsibility for keeping library books and textbooks clean and returning them on time, in good condition. If a student repeatedly breaks library rules, he or she may be restricted from library use. Students must have their student ID with them to check out materials.

Students must return, or pay, for overdue, damaged or lost library books and textbooks before additional books will be issued or made available for them to check out, before report cards are issued and before registering for the next school year. Students with overdue books may lose library privileges.

Our staff is devoted to providing progressive and current sources of information for your child, in a friendly environment. We look forward to working with your child.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, returned materials will be quarantined, unstacked, for seven days before being eligible for check out again.  We are closely following guidance and research from OCLC, The Institute of Museum and Library Services and Batelle to ensure the highest standards of safety in our library.  Please visit the REALM project website for the latest research on the survivability of COVID-19 on library and archive materials.  The safety of our students, families, and staff is of utmost importance.  We are taking every precaution to assure our community that students both have access to the materials they need to thrive as learners and can access them without threat of exposure.

Welcome back Wildcats!  Our first week of the 2019-2020 school year is in the books.  We made some changes to the Library over the summer, how do you like our new art? Special thank you to Wildcat mom Linda Kittell and former Wildcat Arden Baur for lending their artistic skills to our mural project.  
We have an exciting year coming up, and our fall Book Fair is quickly approaching.  Check out our Scholastic website here.  There's a place for parents to sign up to volunteer with us too.  Watch this space for more information!

Please remember to bring in your box tops.  You can find box tops on thousands of your favorite products, from cereals to office supplies.  Clip these Box Tops and have your student bring them in to the school library.  Thank you so much for supporting us!
