Games OKAY For Playing in the Library:

Students and Books Get a 

Second Chance at the Library

If students have overdue books and/or magazines, or if they have unpaid fines, they will not be able to checkout fiction books and magazines from the regular library shelves. Anyone with overdue books and/or magazines or unpaid fines will be able to choose books from the new "Second Chance" shelves in the library. The books on the Second Chance shelves are getting a second chance to be chosen by a student after having been removed from circulation due to damage, age wear and tear, duplication, or lack of interest. Students will be getting a second chance to checkout books from the library.  Second Chance books are still due back to the library in three weeks from checkout date.



 

 
This is the COOLEST nerdy book club you'll ever find!
