Check-Out Policies

Kindergarten students check out one book at a time.

First Graders check out one book at a time.

Second Graders may check out two books.

Third Graders may check out two books.

Fourth Graders may check out two books.
Students who are able to check out multiple books are expected to select at least one book that is "just right" for them. The other book may be above or below grade level.

Students are introduced to a variety of literature, and are always encouraged to select a book that interests them. Though book selection is often a "free choice" students may be required to check out a particular type of book to correlate with a unit that is being taught.

Overdue Materials

Students are not charged for overdue materials. Overdue reminders are sent once a month.

Students with overdue books, or who owe fees for lost books, will not be permitted to check out additional books.

If a student loses a book, they are expected to make a good faith effort to find it. If the book cannot be found, the students needs to pay for the book so that a replacement may be purchased for the library collection. If the book is found during the same school year, a refund will be issued.

Once a new school year begins, the cost of the book will not be refunded.

In case of a damaged book, please return it to the library to be mended. A book that is severely damaged must be paid for so that it can be replaced.
