Library Media Services Vision

  • Knox County School Librarians are the friendly faces of knowledge acquisition.  Our libraries are growing, multiservice, dynamic school centers that welcome, motivate, and inspire everyone in our community of users.  We invest our time and skills in nurturing, promoting, and advocating for a learning environment that maximizes services and equitable access to resources. Our library programs are essential to a school-wide culture of innovation, achievement, and collaboration.  Knox County School Librarians are forward-thinking leaders who model inquiry, information literacy, technologies, and trends in reading and instruction.  Our professional charge is to inform and empower by fostering a safe environment where users can read, explore, question, solve, and create, leading to Excellence for Every Child.

Circulation Policies

  • Students may check out 2 books at a time. Books are due in 3 week cycles. However, if any one book becomes overdue, the student may not check out another one until that late book has been returned. There is a .05 cent fine for every day a book is late. This fine only applies on weekdays. Weekends, holidays, and inclement weather is excluded from fine accumulation. Teachers and the Library Media Specialist have worked together to maximize the opportunities for students to be able to browse for the materials they need.
