How many books may I check out?

Students are allowed to checkout 3 books at a time.

How long may I keep my library book?

Students may borrow a library book for a period of three weeks, and can renew a book as many times as they would like. Students must bring the book to the library before the due date to renew the book.

What can I do if a library book is checked out to someone else?

A student may request a librarian to place a library book on hold. The student’s teacher will be notified that the book is available for the student to check out. Holds will be kept for a 2-week period; after that time, the book will be returned to its shelf.

  
What happens if my book is overdue (late)?

Once a book is overdue, students cannot checkout books until all overdue materials are returned.

Homeroom teachers are given a list of students in their class with overdue books on a weekly basis. We ask that the homeroom teacher relay this information to the students in their class.

After two weeks, parents are notified via phone that their student has an overdue book. After 30 days, any overdue books are considered “lost” and students are assessed a replacement fee equal to the cost of the book. 
  
Students are asked to either pay this fine, or preferably, return the overdue book as soon as possible. Once the book is returned, the fine is deleted from their account.

 I need to do research at home. Are there library resources I can use?

The librarians have evaluated many web sites and have included links to them on the Research- Website Links page.  The library web page also has links to several online databases. Passwords are available in the Library & on the Library Canvas page.

What magazines are available in the library?

The library has a variety of magazines available. Students may read them in the library, or check them out for use at home.
