Book loan policy:

Students may have up to 3 books checked out at any time as long as they do not have any overdues or owe any fines. Students must bring their ID cards to check out books.  Books have a two week loan period; however, a student may renew the book as often as needed so long as no one else is in need of the book they have.  They must bring the book with them in order to renew it.

Library Computers and Copier

Library computers and copier:  Our library is currently working on getting laptops. Students will have access to them before school, during their lunch, and after school.  The Lenovos are to only be used for school work related use. DO NOT send students to school with a flash drive containing a project they downloaded from home as the flash drives are not permitted on school computers because they can harbor viruses.  I will do my best to assist you getting the work you need. The laptops currently do not have access to a printer. Please note that the library printer only prints in black and white.

“When I step into this library, I cannot understand why I ever stepped out of it.”—Marie de Sevigne

Welcome to the Ruth Musser Middle School Library. Our hours are from 7:30 until 3:30.  Students are also welcome to come up during their lunch to do silent reading and work. 

A lot has changed over the years in school libraries from the card catalog to the hushed tones of students reading quietly in the study carrels.  Here at Ruth Musser, the library offers cozy spots to quietly read. It is also a good place for collaboration and scholarly discussions. In addition to a full schedule of classes, you will find students here for Bulldog Book Club meetings, Student of the Month lunches, after school tutoring, and in the morning before school starts. Our library is beautifully decorated with student projects for all to admire. Since we are becoming a 21st century library, we have Wi-Fi, and a smart board. We are working on getting laptops into the library for students to use.

It is my hope that everyone will feel welcomed and comfortable in this beautiful setting.  Teachers are welcomed to sign up to visit the library each week, in addition to students coming up on their own time. 

We use Follett Destiny which allows students to check for a title from any device that has internet access 24/7.  They can also open and use our growing EBook collection from here. You can click on the link provided, or use the purple box to the right: RMMS Destiny Library Manager. Here's a link to a tutorial if you need help using our Ebook catalog: Ebook tutorialThe username and password are musserstu.

Click on the link above to see RMMS Library's Amazon Wish List! Here you will find books and other items our students would appreciate having in the library. Donated books will be added to our library so that our students can check them out and enjoy for their reading pleasure. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated!
