The goals of the Severn River Middle School Library are fourfold:
- Create life-long library users and readers
- Provide instruction that supports and enhances the school’s curriculum
- Support the professional development and personal achievement of the staff
- Provide media services to students and staff
Hours & Accessibility*
The library has but one request: Be considerate. This means that students must follow all school rules and be especially polite!
The library opens at 8:35 a.m. Monday through Friday. Students must come directly into the library and must ask permission to go elsewhere in the building. The library is open during all lunches. The library is open after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
*Due to teacher meetings and illnesses, there may be days when the library is closed before school, during lunches, or after school.
