FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. How many books can I check out?
Pre-K and Kinder may check out one book each. It is up to the teacher if these books go home or stay in the library. First and Second grade may check out two books at a time. And finally, third through fifth grades may check out up to three items; this includes the magazines and the Playaways.
2. What if I lose or damage my book?
Students who lose their book are first encourage to look everywhere for the book. Popular hiding places include the classroom library, backpack, under the sofa or bed, in the toy box, and the lost and found at school. If the book still cannot be located, a note is sent home with the price of the book. Students who cannot pay for a book are encourage to speak to Mrs. Day to work out another arrangement. Our ultimate goal is for students to check out books, not find ways to keep them away.
It is important for students to let the librarians know as soon as possible about a damaged book. Some books we are able to repair here in the library. No fines will be charged in these cases. For books damaged beyond repair, students will be charged for the book which will be dealt with in the same manner as a lost book.
3. What do I do if I lost or damaged beyond repair my ID/lunch/library card?
