Be respectful to the librarian, to your teacher, other students, to any other patron in the Library.
Remember the library is a quiet place.
After you check out your books, you may sit near the door and wait patiently for your teacher.
Running, chewing gum, eating snacks, and loud talking are not allowed in the library.
Ask the librarian for a book if you do not find it in the system or on the shelves.
When you get a book from the shelves please don’t shelve it back, leave it on top of the counter or on the table, the librarian will put it back to the right place.
The computer station has three computers: one is only for the library catalog do not log out, if the patron can not find what they want ask the librarian. The other two computers are for student/teachers projects or for looking some academic information. Remember to use your personal ID number and password and log out once finished.
Books are treasures. If a book is lost or damaged the student will have to pay for it. Sometimes they can replace books with a similar one.
Do not attempt to repair a book. If it can be repaired by us, you will not have to pay for it.
Grades 2-5 may check out two books for two weeks. We expect the children return their books before as they visit the library every week.
All books must be turned in a week before the end of the semester, or the student's future check-outs will be restricted. Students will also be restricted if they have an overdue or damaged book.
When you check out a book, check for damages and let the librarian know by the next day so you won't be held responsible for the damage.
If the child is in 5th grade they won’t be able to get the primary school certificate, to use any library services in Middle School or graduate from High School.
We can offer some solutions if you are not able to pay for the fines or replace the books such as:
-Doing volunteer work at school for the amount of the items, for example: if your child has a fine for about $40.00 you can come and volunteer for 3.5 hours ($12.00 per hour).
-Buying the same book(s) at Bookmans, Goodwill, Savers or Amazon (used in good condition). If you find the book at later date, we will gladly refund your money.
Simply, if you have lost your book you have to pay for it or buy a new one (it can be used in a very good condition). If your book is damaged return it and replace it with a new one, it could be the same book used in good condition, sometimes you can find it a little cheaper. If you could not find the same title please bring something similar.
For example: Police dogs $ 25 – you can replace it with the same book, you can replace it with the same title but different book or books about working dogs. You cannot replace the book with “Clifford the big red dog : show-and-tell surprise” because “Police dogs” is a different subject than “Clifford the big red dog”.
