Library Policies

  • Hours of Operation

    The library is open for student use during school hours. Students unaccompanied by a staff member must have a pass from class.

    Students are expected to abide by the Seaholm code of conduct.  In the library, we ask all patrons to: 
    1.  Be doing something productive. 
    2.  Be doing it in a way that allows others to be productive.
    3.  Be respectful of other people and property.
    4.  Ask for help when needed -- we are happy to assist you!

    Checkouts

    Students may borrow up to 10 materials at a time.  For most library materials, the loan period is three weeks.  Students may renew their materials online (login to Destiny using ClassLink for easy access) or in the library.

    Overdues

    Overdue notices are sent out every week to both student BPS gmail accounts as well as parent emails.  We do not charge overdue fines.

    Lost/Damaged Materials

    If a student loses any library material, then the student is required to pay for the replacement cost of the borrowed item.  Sometimes books are lost and paid for, then later found.  If the lost item is returned to the library within 90 days, the cost of the book will be refunded to the family.  If a student returns a library item in damaged condition, then the student is responsible for paying the replacement cost for the damaged item.
