    • Extra books are permitted to support specific school projects.

There are no late fees for overdue books, but students may not check out a new book until overdue books are returned. Students are responsible for paying for lost or damaged books.

All books must be returned or paid for by the last week of school for your child to receive his or her final report card in June.

Please share library books with your child and support your child in returning books to the school library on time.

Please support your children in taking good care of school library books. Books should be transported between home and school in book bags only. Please help your child identify a safe place to store library books at home where they will be safe from water, pets, or very young children. Please remind them that library books represent a valuable community resource to be shared by all.
