Media Center Policies

Checking Out Books

  • Library books may be checked out and taken home for a one-week period. After one week, the book(s) may be renewed for another one-week period. Students may check out books as follows:
    • Kindergarten and Grade 1: 1 book
    • Grades 2-5: 2 books


Overdue Books

  • Books which are not returned after one week are considered overdue.
  • If a student has an overdue book, he/she may not check out another book until the overdue book is returned.
  • We do not charge overdue fines in elementary school.

Lost or Damaged Books

  • Students are encouraged to be responsible in caring for books; however, if a book is lost or damaged to the point where it cannot be circulated, parents are notified of the cost of the book.
  • When payment is made for a lost or damaged book, the student may again check out books from the Media Center.
  • Should the book be found within 1 month from the payment date, it may be returned to the Media Center and the payment will be refunded.
    • *This applies to the school year only. If a book is returned after the school year has ended, a refund cannot be issued.
