What is required to check out a book?

To check out a book from the library, you must have no fines/or overdue books. If you have a fine or an overdue book, you must first return the book and pay your fines to be able to check out more books.


How long do I keep the book(s)?

Once you are approved to check out a book, you have three school weeks (approximately 20 days) to get the information you need or to simply read the book. If you need more time bring the book to the library and renew it.


Is there a limit to how many book(s) I can check out?

Yes, there is a limit on the number of books that can be
checked out. Three (3) books can be checked out at any given time.



What happens if the books are late? What happens if I lose a book?

You are charged an overdue fine of 10 cents per school day, per book, up to $5.00 maximum. If you lose/damage the book you must pay the replacement cost of the book. A student who has a fine, or an overdue book may not check out additional materials until fines are cleared and books are returned. The student is responsible whether or not they receive a notice. If there is an error on the notice a student should see the library staff immediately.


Who is responsible for the book?

Students are responsible for books and materials checked out in their name. If a book checked out to a student is loaned to another student, it remains the responsibility of the student who checked out the book from the library to return the book, pay the fine, or pay for the book(s). Students are strongly encouraged to keep books they've checked out in their possession.
