The Resouce Centre was renamed at a dedication ceremony on October 22, 2013 to honour and recognize the dedication and commitment of Dr. Warner F. Walters in the furthering of education in Melville.
The center is an excellent resource for both research and recreational reading. The collection stands at over 11,000 volumes, with 21% Fiction, 20% Teacher-resource material and 59% Non-Fiction. There are also magazines and the local newspaper available to students and staff. During the year, the Library displays student projects and art work.
Primary rule is: RESPECT OTHERS.
Library circulation has been automated since the fall of 1987 with a computer program that tracks the checking out and in of library materials to students and staff. The computer cataloging system started in the fall of 1993 using full MARC records. We now have an internet based that allows Students and staff to access the Library Catalog from any computer on the internet and search for materials by Title, Author, Subject, Series, Keywords, etc. Titles can be selected into a "bookbag" and then a list may be printed.
Students and staff can also access their own Library info as to what books they have out, overdues and holds, as well as a history of books they have borrowed in the past. They can place holds, renew books and rate and recommend their favorite books.
The Library Computer Room houses 28 computers for student use. The computers are networked and allow printing to the two printers in the Library. Students must have a signed GSSD Information Technology Acceptable Use Agreement before they can access these computers.
The new Destiny Library Catalogue is available online so it can also be accessed from outside the school. Click here to access: MCS LIBRARY CATALOG
