Lower School Media Center

 

Welcome to the UMS-Wright Lower School Library Media Center webpage.   I am enthusiastic to join UMS-Wright this year as the Lower School Library Media Specialist. This is a place where students can come to access digital resources, and parents can come to find information about how to support their child in the learning process throughout the school year. My vision of the library is to create a welcoming environment where the school community will collaborate and work together, provide resources, teach 21st century skills, enable access to digital resources, and instill a love of reading.

Overdue or Lost Books

Preschool through 1st grade students check out one book, and 2nd-4th grade students can check out two books at a time from the lower school library. There is not a fine for overdue books. However, your child will not be able to check out another book until the book is returned. If your child loses or damages a book, the fee is $15. Once they pay the lost/damaged fee they will be allowed to check out again.
