    Infographic Explaining Our Check Out Policy

    Check Out

    Students, teachers, and adult family members are encouraged to check out books from our Library.  All library patrons may borrow materials for two weeks.

    • Kindergarten check out one or two books per week depending on the time of year. They usually turn in the book(s) within a week.
    • First graders check out three books per week. They usually turn in the book(s) within a week.
    • 2nd and 3rd graders may borrow four books.
    • 4th and 5th graders may borrow five books.
    • 6th graders may borrow six books.

    Overdue Books

    • Books are overdue if they have not been turned in within two weeks.
    • Students will be reminded at library class time that they have an overdue book that they should turn in or renew.
    • When a student has two or more overdue books, they will no longer be able to check out books.  Their teacher and family will be notified.   Books are overdue if they have not been turned in within two weeks.  
    • If a student is unable to check out due to overdue books, a parent can contact the library to let us know that they are aware of the situation.  Once the parent contacts the library, the student can resume checking out books.  

    Lost Books and Replacement Fines

    • A book is considered lost if it has not been returned to the library on time and the student has received multiple reminders to return the book.
    • Fines for lost books are sent home at each report card period.  
    • As the fine period approaches, students and families will be contacted (verbally, electronically, paper notices) turn in or renew lost books.
    • Please contact Mr. Kleyn immediately if you have any questions about a lost book fine.
    • Report cards will be held and check out will stop for students who have any unpaid fines for lost books.  
    • Students will resume checking out books when they have paid their fine.

    Damaged Books and Replacements

    • A book is considered damaged if it is no longer suitable for check out due to water damage, ripped pages, or other physical damage of the book. 
    • If a student has damaged a book, they should bring the damaged book to the library as soon as possible. 
    • Fines for damaged books are sent home immediately.
    • Report cards will be held and check out will stop for students who have any unpaid fines for damaged books.
    • Students will resume checking out books when they have paid their fine.

    Purchasing a Book As a Replacement

    If you are interested in replacing a book with a copy that you purchase on your own, the book must be a new copy of the same title with the same binding (paperback or hardcover).  We must receive the book at the same time that fines are due.
