  • The library staff reserves the right to set limits on the number of high demand books that may be borrowed and/or renewed.
  • We suggest that student keep their library books in a safe place (like their backpack), handle them carefully, and accept responsibility for returning them in as good condition as when they borrowed them.

Frequently Asked Questions

This page will answer questions commonly asked by students and parents.

How many books can I check out?

This depends on what grade you are in and what your library borrowing history has been. Please check the Library Rules tab to the left to see more specific information about this question.

How long can I keep my borrowed materials?

Your books are due a week after you checked them out. You can renew one time without bringing the book into the library. After that you need to bring the book in so we can physically renew it.

What if I lose or damage a book, magazine or other library item?

You will need to pay the cost of the library material that was damaged or lost. Please make sure you are following the guidelines from the tab "Taking Care of Library Books" to the left so that you don't damage or lose another book.

I want to help out in the library, can I?

Yes! We can always use volunteers in the library. Parents, grandparents, other adult community members and students can come in and help check in and check out books, shelve books, help students find books, care for our materials and work on special projects. See Ms. Cook or email her to find out more and sign up!
