How many books can a student check out?

  • Students in Grades K may borrow one book at a time.
  • Students in Grades 1 through 5 may borrow two books at a time.
  • Parents/Guardians may borrow up to five books from the library. Please visit the library to set up an account.

When are books due?

  • Books are checked out for one week at a time for Grades K through 5. Books may be renewed, but they must be brought into the Library for renewal.

What happens if my book is overdue?

  • Please note that students are NOT charged a daily overdue fine. Students will be reminded to return overdue books and may not be allowed to check out a new book until the overdue item is returned.
  • After 30 days, books will be considered lost and students will be assessed a fine for the item.

What happens if my book is lost/damaged?

  • A book is considered lost once 30 days have passed since the original due date. Students with lost or damaged books are unable to check out any library materials.
  • Lost/damaged books must be paid for in order to clear student records and reinstate library privileges.
  • Payments can be made via the LVUSD site, and a copy of the receipt must be brought to the library.
  • Alternatively, exact cash can be brought to the library.
