Library Policies


Our Learning Commons plans for a flexible schedule where multiple students can access it simultaneously throughout the instructional day. Mrs. Allen collaborates with teachers to ensure the use of library resources support ongoing classroom instruction and implementation of the state-adopted curriculum.

Weekly Checkout

All classes have the opportunity to come to the library once a week to check out new books. There is no limit to the number of books you can check out. Think about what you need, and check out what you will read! Books may be kept for two weeks, but you can renew if you need it longer!

Overdue Books

A book is considered overdue when it has been absent from the library for more than 14 days. Each Wednesday, an overdue notice is emailed to the parent of any student who has an overdue book at that time.

Lost/Damaged Books

If a book cannot be found, it is considered lost. A book is considered damaged if is returned in a worse condition than when it was checked out. The most common form of damage is torn pages, writing in the book, or water spills on the book. Lost and damaged books must be paid for. Mrs. Allen will send home a form indicating the cost of the book. Please send your payment to the school. Checks should be made out to PMES. If you send cash, please send the exact amount as no change can be given. If the lost book is found before the last day of the current school year, then a refund form will be sent home with the student.

Learning Commons Hours

The library is open daily from 7:15 to 2:45.

Library P.A.S.S.

If you are a student currently attending a Cobb County Public School, you already have a Library PASS (Public Library Access for Student Success) account. That means you have access to all of the awesome resources at the public library, including 93 online databases, 18,659 eBooks, 7,270 eAudiobooks, and 430 streaming videos as well as 604,908 physical items in their collection.

How does it work?

Use your student number and your PIN to check out library materials and access digital resources. Your PIN is your 4 digit birthday using the month and day you were born. For example, if you were born on February 4, your PIN would be 0204.
