Dewey Decimal System
This guide explains how our Library and Internet resources are organized using the Dewey Decimal System. Look over the list of call numbers then see if you know where to find titles concerning folk tales, a french dictionary, basketball rules, and jazz.
We have ebooks which you may read online. Use the online catalog to find them by typing "ebook" in the search box, or type in the title, author, or subject, and the word "ebook" to see if we have what you want. The Slauson Media Center invites you to use the online catalog at the following web address:

Borrowing, Fines, Overdues, and Renewals
Students may borrow books for two weeks. Generally, students may check out up to three books at a time. Sometimes, when more research is needed, a greater number of items may be borrowed. Magazines may be borrrowed for three days. The latest issue of magazines do not circulate unless there is more than one copy of that same issue owned by the media center. Reference items may be borrowed for one day. Fines for overdue materials are five cents a day. Days when school is not in session do not count toward fines.
Overdue notices are sent to advisories each week. Students are encouraged to return items and pay their fines so that they will be allowed to continue borrowing materials.
Students can renew their books up to two times, for a total of six weeks. The only exception to this renewal policy is when a book has been placed on hold.
Renewals may be done in person or by e-mail. You do not need to have the book with you in order to renew it.
The media center is a place for you to read and study without being distracted or interrupted. Use your time wisely to do individual or classroom assignments. Use the computer's internet functions for class assignments. If you have "free time", play only the authorized educational games that are already loaded on the computer. Do not visit websites that have nothing to do with your assignment(s)!
You are responsible for maintaining this quiet space for your fellow students. This means no distracting others with loud talking or other forms of interruption.
You are responsible for using and returning materials in an orderly fashion. This means clean up whatever you mess up and return materials or equipment used promptly and properly.
