Checkout Guidelines

Library books may be checked out by students for a period of one week in Kindergarten and 1st grade and two weeks in 2nd through 5th grades. Kindergarten students may check out one book at a time and all other students may check out two books at a time. Books may be renewed if necessary but must be brought to the Media Center for renewal. There is no fine for overdue books. Overdue notices will be sent out weekly. Students may come at any time during the day for individual check out. The reference section is open to all students for research any time during the school day. Students working on the internet must have prior directives given by their teacher.

Lost or Damaged Books

Students are responsible for books checked out in their name. Fines for replacing or repairing a book will be assigned to students who lose or damage their book(s). The price for a hardback book is $15 and the price for a paperback book is $500. Fines for damaged books will be assessed in proportion to the damage, determined by the Media Specialist. Students who continually ignore late notices will be asked to pay for the book. Report cards will also be held at the end of the school year if books are not paid for.
