• Book checkout policies:

    Who comes to the library and how often? 

    All children grades K-2 come to the library for a lesson and book checkout every 4 school days.  Grades 3 and 4 come once a week for a lesson and book checkout.  Grade 5 comes to the library when needed.

     

    How many books does my child get to check out?

    Grades K and 1 will be able to have up to two books checked out at a time.  If there is a class project that requires a book for research another book can be checked out.

    Grades 2-5 are allowed up to three books checked out at a time.  If there is a class project that requires a book for research another book can be checked out.

     

    When do the books need to be returned?

    All books are due two weeks after the book has been checked out.  If a student still wants or needs to keep the book longer, please bring the book into the library to have it renewed.

     

    When does a book become overdue?

    A book becomes overdue when it has been checked out for more than two weeks.   After a book has been overdue for 90 days it will be marked as lost.  The book will need to be paid for.  If the book has been paid for and it is found within 90 days a refund will be given.
