While the library does not fine students for overdue books, lost or damaged books will result in a bill to recover the replacement cost of the book. Additional books may not be borrowed (textbooks or books for pleasure) until lost or damaged books are found or paid for.
Books can be put on reserve using the online catalog and picked up at the circulation desk.
There is a selection of textbooks available for students to use within the library
Reference books and current issues of periodicals are also available for circulation.
Patrons can check the catalog of the Bedford Public Library (and all of the GMILCS libraries) and put a hold on a book with the bar code on the back of their public library card.

Students are expected to return all library materials on time and are held responsible for all lost or damaged materials. Students are expected to behave responsibly and show respect for each other, for the resources and the facility of the Library. Students who infringe on the rights of others to work in an appropriate environment may be asked to leave. Additional incidents will be handled by the administration and may result in the loss of library privileges. All school rules apply in the library.
We send two separate emails every Monday morning, one to parents and one to the student.
The parent email contains any required reading materials and/or equipment that may be overdue.
The student email contains ALL materials so their privacy rights are protected.
