Library Media Center

Welcome to the Library!

The New Caney HS Library Media Center is dedicated to advancing literacy and learning for all students. This is achieved through three strands: Literacy, Design Thinking, and Technology.

The Literacy strand includes a variety of instructional approaches which foster an interest in and appreciation of reading and develop information literacy skills through the use of the library’s research databases.  

The Design Thinking strand includes lessons and activities in which students use the makerspace to approach problems creatively, fostering innovation and problem-solving skills.  
The Technology component seeks to help students use technology effectively and appropriately through projects designed collaboratively by their classroom teacher and campus media specialist.

Checkout Guidelines

Students self-select books from the library under the guidance of library staff. 

Books are checked out for 2 weeks, and can be renewed no more than 2 times. 

Overdue notices are sent via email and paper slips for any items not returned to the library when due. If a book is lost or damaged beyond repair, students must pay the full cost of the book. Students with excessive overdues will not be permitted to check out books from the library.

Parent Information

Parents and guardians are the primary decision makers regarding their student's access to library materials. While campus library staff are trained in selecting materials in accordance with Board policy, the ultimate determination of appropriateness lies with the student and parent.

To view all print books in our library, click on the Library Catalog button on this page. Students can access their library accounts by logging into Accessit from Classlink. Once logged in, students can view their current checkouts and checkout history. 

Should you have questions about how we select materials for our library or have a concern over a library book your child has checked out, please reach out to Dustin Catchings.
