MAY STUDENTS COME TO THE LIBRARY FOR BOOKS AT TIMES OTHER THAN THEIR CLASS’S WEEKLY LIBRARY CLASS?
Yes, students may come to the library during morning arrival on their way to class. With their teacher’s permission they may come to the library during the school day. The school library is open from 8:30 – 4 every day.

MAY STUDENTS RENEW A BOOK?
If students are still reading a book, they may bring it to the library to RENEW or check it out for two more weeks.

WHAT IF STUDENTS FORGET TO RETURN THEIR BOOKS? WHAT IF BOOKS ARE OVERDUE?
The library staff may remind students which books are on their account. If a book is overdue for more than 2 weeks, we will send an email to parents.

WHAT IF A BOOK IS LOST OR DAMAGED?
If a book is lost or damaged and no longer be used, a fine is assessed. Families may pay for the book by check or cash. A replacement copy of the same book may be provided instead of payment. If a lost book is returned to the library by the end of the school year the fine will be refunded.
