Library Policies

Who comes to the library and how often? 

Kindergarten and first-grade students attend the library for a lesson and book checkout every four school days. Second-grade students attend library twice a week for a lesson and checkout once.  Third through Fifth grade students have book checkout options twice a week and lessons are flexibly scheduled with their teachers.

How many books does my child get to check out?

Junior Kindergarteners, Kindergarteners and first graders have the option to borrow a maximum of two books simultaneously. Students may checkout new books as long as their previous items have been returned.

Students in second through fifth grade are permitted to borrow up to three books at a time. In the case of a class project requiring a book for research, extra books may be borrowed.

When do books need to be returned?

The due date for all books is two weeks from the date of checkout. If a student wishes to extend their borrowing period, they can bring the book to the library for renewal.

When is a book overdue?

When a book is borrowed for a period exceeding two weeks, it is considered overdue. If a book remains overdue for 90 days, it will be classified as lost and will require payment. However, if the book has already been paid for and is subsequently found within 90 days, a refund will be issued.
