Library Policy

Circulation

Students may check out an unlimited number of items for a period of 3 weeks.  Parents may borrow 5 items for a period of 3 weeks. We appreciate early returns. 

Overdue Books

Students and parents will be reminded of their overdue books weekly.  Patrons with overdue items may not be allowed to check out books until all overdue books are returned, and patrons with long overdue books may lose access to Powerschool until their obligations are taken care of.  Books can be renewed online (before they are due) or in person (when they are overdue) to avoid any issues.

Lost Books

The library should be notified immediately if a book is lost.  A charge for the replacement cost of the book will be assessed.  If the book is found within a reasonable amount of time and before the item has been replaced, the money will be refunded.
