Borrowing Library Materials
All members of the McGlynn Middle School community may borrow library books. No library card is needed; your last name will be used to access your account. All materials must be checked out at the circulation desk by a librarian. Materials are due in two weeks, but may be renewed as needed. Students will be responsible for any unreturned items and will be required to pay for the replacement cost of that item.
