The Wesley Chapel High School Media Center strives to provide an environment which encourages users to explore new ideas and technologies, and to develop information literacy skills, thereby fostering life-long learning.
The Media Center is open 7:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Monday thru Thursday and 7:00 a.m. – 2:15 p.m. on Fridays. Students must have a media pass to enter during class hours. To get a lunch pass, visit the Media Center prior to 7:30 a.m.
Books can be borrowed for two weeks and can be renewed. Students can check out three books at a time. Reference and Overnight books can be checked out at the end of the day and must be returned before 1st period the next day. We do not charge overdue fines. Students and staff can use the MIND (Media Information Network for the District) to find books and access the district databases. If a book not owned by WCHS is owned by another school in the district, ask a media staff member to request it for you.
