Students and faculty members may check out books and materials. Students using the Media Center during school hours must have a written pass from a teacher to be excused from study hall. Borrowers will assume responsibility for replacement of lost materials. When students borrow books from other libraries through MVL (e.g. MLC, Bethany, MSU, etc.), such use is viewed as a library-to-library loan, MVL is liable to the lending library for the prompt and safe return of the borrowed book. Because MVL and its constituents benefit from such a system, and because of MVL’s stated responsibility, any such library books not returned for whatever reason to their respective libraries will be billed to the student’s account, subject for payment prior to graduation from MVL. Student library privileges will be rescinded for a time if they are abused.

Student librarians are sophomores, juniors, and seniors who are willing to use their study hall time in this study/work program. They may volunteer for this position or may be asked by the librarian. They are required to sit behind the check out desk and help students when necessary. Otherwise, their time can be spent doing school work.
