BMS Service Policy
The Barrington Middle School (BMS) Library Media Center is virtually open to all Barrington students and staff.
Barrington Middle School (BMS) students, school district staff members, and parents can check out all items that are part of our regular circulation.
There are no overdue fines.
Lost or significantly damaged items must be paid for at the cost of replacement.
Interlibrary loan requests may be placed by BMS patrons independently when they are logged in or through the library staff.
All items in circulation are available for interlibrary loan.
Library staff and patrons can submit interlibrary loan requests.
Interlibrary loan requests will be filled at the discretion of the school library media specialist.
Local patron hold requests take precedence over interlibrary loan requests for the same item.
Items that are specifically reserved for in-library or classroom use are temporarily excluded from an interlibrary loan as needed.
ILL requests will be filled (or declined) as quickly as possible.
There are no interlibrary loan fees or overdue fines.
Lost or significantly damaged items must be paid for at the cost of replacement. In certain circumstances, a replacement copy may be accepted.
Items borrowed through interlibrary loan have a 35 day loan period and can be renewed one time.
