Library Policies 

Checkout Procedures

You can have 3 library items out at a time, for a month.  The due date for each item is stamped on the due date slip in the front of each item.  After a month, please renew or return your book in the book drop at the circulation desk.  You can renew your library materials twice.  Follow these directions to renew your materials yourself, by logging into your library account.


Overdue Notices/Emails

Several times a year, we will send out overdue notices and/or emails to you and your parents.  These are reminders to either return or renew your materials.  We ask that all materials be returned at the end of the school year. 


Lost or Damaged Materials

If you’ve checked everywhere (including under your bed), and still cannot find your book, please bring cash or check to the library to replace the book.  Damaged books will be evaluated and charged based on the extent of the damage and cost of repair.
