Overdue Policy

  • Library books can be signed out a week at a time. Books may be renewed for another week, but they must be brought to the library during the scheduled time to do so.
  • If absent, students are expected to return books to the library as soon as they return to school from an absence if they miss their scheduled library day.
  • If a book is not returned by the due date, then the student will owe 1 cent (per book) per school day that it is late. If a student is absent or school is closed, then these days do not count towards the fine.
  • Kindergarten and 1st grade students will not be charged fines.
  • If the book is returned to the Library within 2 days of the due date, then the fine is waived.
  • Overdue notices will be sent home with students as reminders that there is an overdue book the first day it is overdue and will continue to be sent home with the students until the book is returned.
  • If the book has not been returned in due time, then a notice will be mailed home.
  • Failure to return a book in a timely manner or damaging it will result in having to pay the replacement cost of the book. Students that continue to have overdue books may also lose the privilege of signing out books.
  • If a student has any overdue books or fines, then the student will not be allowed to take new books from the library until all outstanding books are returned to the library and fines are paid.
  • Students that do not take care of an overdue book or a fine after 1 month will earn a detention.
  • The fines are not about making money for the library, but they are another way to teach students about responsibility! Parents, please help us in teaching this valuable lesson!
