The library is located across from the front office. It is open from 7:35 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
You can use the library to check out a book and return CPMS books. You have to have an I.D. to check out a book and you must have a pass to enter the library during the school day. The library also has computers to aid students with work.
The computers in the library are used to find a book. We also have 8 computers that students can use to do assignments.
You can work on assignments, read and check out books, play Chess or Checkers, work on our puzzle, color on the Mandala, or work in the Makerspace Lab. Please eat before requesting a lunch pass to come into the library.
TURNING IN A BOOK LATE
For every day and every book, you have checked out and is overdue you get fined $0.05. To stop the fine from getting bigger, the book must be returned. This will not make the fine that has already accrued go away. To do that, you must pay what is owed. If you are unsure what your due date is, please reference the due date slip in front of the book as we always stamp the due date there.
PURCHASING A REPLACEMENT I.D. CARD
In the library, you can also buy an I.D. from 7:35 a.m.-4:00 p.m. The cost is $5 and $1 for the lanyard. If you'd like to pay by check then please make checks out to: Charles Patterson Middle School.
