DBMS Library

Welcome to your Douglas Byrd Middle School Library webpage. Here, you will find information about the books in the library, ebooks that are available to you 24/7, and some technology tips that can save you time and energy.

I am Mrs. Sartain, your librarian. I am thrilled to work here at Douglas Byrd and I am very passionate about reading and technology.  I also help run your Battle of the Books (BOB) Team. If you are interested in being on our BOB team, see Mrs. Sartain for the list of books or click here.
Battle of the Books meets after school on Thursdays until 4:00 p.m.

Library Policies
Library hours: 7:00 a.m. until 2:40 p.m.
Students are allowed to have up to two books checked out at a time. Books are due three weeks from checkout and may be renewed if the student wants more time with the book. Books not returned eight weeks after the due date will switch to “lost” and the student will be charged the full price of the book. If the book is returned, the fee will be removed. We do not charge late fees, with the exception of lost book fees. If a student has fees from other schools, they may still check out books from the DBMS library. I want students to have access to books. If a student finds an old book from another school, please bring it in and I will make sure those fees are removed.

To see what books are available for checkout in the DBMS library, click HERE to access the catalog. Click on Douglas Byrd Middle School, then click on the Catalog tab in the upper left hand corner.  In the search bar, you may search by topic, title, or author.
