Circulation Policy

How many books can I take? That depends on your grade.  However, you may be able to take an extra book for a class project.

     Kindergarteners borrow one book each library class.  When students return a book, they may borrow a new one.  If they forget a book, they can continue to enjoy it until the next library class.

Grade 1 borrows 1 book for two weeks.

Grades 2 - 5  borrows 2 items for 2 weeks.

It's the student's responsiblilty to take care of his/her books and return them to the library on the due date. 

How long can I keep my book? Students can read their book for two weeks.  

What happens if I'm absent on circulation day? If a student is absent, please keep the book until the next book selection class.

What if I didn't finish reading my book? Bring your book to the library so it can be renewed!

What happens if I forget my book?  That's okay.  You can read a book from a special area in the library.  However, if you forget it a second time, a notice will be sent to your parents.

What if my book gets damaged?  That's okay, accidents happen but PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT REPAIR THE BOOK AT HOME.  Please bring it to Ms. Manion.  I have special glue and tape to make repairs.   

What if I lose my book?  Sometimes students lose a book.  Please tell Ms. Manion.  I will send a notice home that gives the replacement cost of that book.
