The TISD library media program strives to cultivate in our students the "desire to know" and the "inspiration to create."  Our aim is to help students engage in information-seeking behavior in order to develop the necessary skills to discover, to focus, to understand, to evaluate, and to innovate with the vast body of information available to them in life.  We expect that our students will embrace the power and responsibility that accompanies their learning, grow to appreciate reading in its many forms, and become life-long learners.
Reading Materials:
Students have take-home access to about 9,500 fiction and non-fiction print books. The library also subscribes to TexQuest reference and research databases with current e-books, online periodicals, magazines and journals that number in the thousands for classroom research or informational reading. Overdrive e-book and audiobook collections are currently being developed, and number in the hundreds.
Reference Services:
A 20-computer lab provides access to digital and online reference materials for students.  Ms. Hare, librarian, is available to assist users with researching and using reference sources, and for online homework help, our TMS library website is maintained with useful links to various services subscribed to by TMS.
Project Center :
Project boxes with a variety of traditional classroom project construction supplies are available for students to check out from the library during the school day. Poster boards and other supply essentials are kept in stock in the library for emergency purchase by students. Library computers are available to walk-in students throughout the day for electronic project creation when not reserved by teachers for whole-class instruction.

Library Procedures for Students
Coming to the Library:
You may come before school, during class, or during lunch with a pass. Library passes may be obtained from library staff or from any teacher. If you want to come in before school, be sure to pick up a pass the day before.

Check Out Info:
You may have 2 books checked out at one time. Use shelf markers when you browse to help keep our library neat! Books are due 10 school days after they are checked out. DON'T FORGET to check the DATE DUE slip in the back of the book, so you know when your books are due! There is a replacement cost charge for books that are irreparably damaged or have been overdue for 90 or more days.
Using Library Computers:
You may use library computers to work on a school project or assignment. You need to have a pass from your teacher. You must follow all TISD campus internet usage rules. You need to ask permission before you print.
