    LIBRARY POLICY & PROCEDURES

    BOOK LOANS

    • PreK and Kindergarten students may check out 1 book at a time.                                                                             
    •  Students in grades 1-5 may check out up to 2 books at a time. 

    OVERDUE/FINES

    Overdue/Fines - There are no fines for overdue books, however, if books are not returned, students may not check out new books.  Students will receive a friendly reminder of the overdue book. LOST/DAMAGED BOOKS

    Lost Materials - If a book is lost, a replacement fee is charged. If the lost book is found and returned in good condition prior to the end of the school year, then the replacement fee is refunded. In lieu of payment of a lost book, the student may bring in a replacement book as long as the book is the same in title, author, hard or soft back book, and new. 

    Damaged Materials - Accidents will happen-a puppy chews on the corner of the book, water bottles spill in backpacks, younger siblings get creative with a marker, and books get left on the playground the day it rains. I stress "book care" and the importance of responsibility in keeping a book in a backpack or desk. If a library book is damaged so that it cannot be circulated again, a replacement amount is charged. In lieu of payment of a damaged book, the student may bring in a replacement book as long as the book is the same in title, author, hard or soft back book, and new.
