Library Policies


1. Students may check-out three fiction books at a time. Students may check-out as many nonfiction books as needed. These may be exchanged or turned in throughout the week. It is our philosophy that students should be able to pick books that interest them as well as ones that they use for their classes.

2. All students may come to the library in the morning before class begins with no e-hall pass needed. All students may come during class time with an e-hall pass. The library may be closed due to the media specialists covering classes. 

3. All books checked out to students are due after three weeks, though they can be renewed if students need additional time. DVDs are due after one week. If we are out of school, they will be due upon the student's next class day.  


1. If a book has been out excessively long, it will be declared lost. Once the book has been declared lost, the student will be asked to cover the cost of the book, minus the late fee fines. If a book is paid for, and then found within the same school year in good condition, a check will be issued and refunded. Any books damaged by water, coloring, food, extremely ripped pages, dog/animal bites, etc... will be the responsibility of the student or parent to pay for. We ask that you pay with a check or cash.

2. Please DO NOT attempt to replace a lost book yourself. The majority of our hardback books are library bound. This means they are special ordered with more durable covers for multi-use check-outs. Books bought from Amazon and other discount retailers often do not offer library bound editions and do not come processed for the library. These books are for home use only, and will not withstand the multiple check-outs that our students will put them through. Our books are also ordered pre-processed. This means they come with our library barcodes attached as well as spine labels and library records; this is an additional cost for us but allows us to get books onto the shelves faster for our patrons.

3. Late books accumulate $.10 per day, per item that a student has checked out. If the fine can not be paid for at the time the book is returned, the fine no longer increases from that date. This does not mean that students do not owe the fine, but that payment is expected at a later date. 

​***All students have been provided training in the care and maintenance of books, and they should be responsible for keeping them in good condition while in their home. While we understand that accidents will happen, we must have the funding to replace books that are lost or damaged. If we did not do this, we would be unable to maintain our library on the funding provided.***
