Library Information

Welcome to the South Tahoe Middle School Library!


CHROMEBOOK/Textbooks/MiFi Updates:

If you have not checked out your chromebook, need to check out a textbook or have a chromebook issue please drive up to Room 15 in the STMS main parking lot on Tuesdays from 10:00 to 12:00 OR Thursdays between 12:00 and 2:00. 

Before bringing in your Chromebook for repair, please visit the Chromebook Quick Help Page:

If you have your own computer to use, please let us know! MiFi’s are currently on backorder. As soon as we get them in we will send out a message. If you have any questions you can email the Librarian, Georgina Balkwell, at  [email protected] .

The Middle School library is open from 7:30 until 2:00 daily with the exception of Wednesdays when it is open from 7:30 until 11:00.  The library closes from 11:30-12:00 for lunch. Students are welcome before school or anytime during the school day with a pass.

Our school library stocks books that are of interest to this age group, books for school reports, and books with Accelerated Reader Tests. The students are expected to do their best to take care of any book they take from the library and to return it to the library on time. The loan period is for 3 weeks with an option to renew.  We do charge fines for late, damaged, or lost books, so please check with your child periodically to make sure library books are accounted for.  The school issued I.D. card is required to check out a book. This verifies the book is going on the correct student record.  (If your child loses their I.D. card, a new one can be purchased through the front office for a nominal fee).

The school library also issues the textbooks to the students. If your child has not received a textbook or has a problem with a textbook, please have them stop by the library.  At home, please designate a place your child can keep their textbooks where they are easily accessible; but will stay clean, dry and protected from young siblings and pets.

If you have any questions, feel free to come by the library or call or email.

Thank you,

Georgina Balkwell
