DAMAGED AND LOST BOOKS
Accidents happen! Most children are responsible, and if a book accidentally becomes damaged, we stress the responsibility to report and replace the damaged book. A notice will be sent home with your child to inform you of the replacement cost. Most of our books are library bound, and not the trade editions you see sold in bookstores. Students with damaged/lost book fees may not check out additional books until the fees are paid.
The Library belongs to everyone!

Proper care of library materials is stressed in all grades. Please help your child designate a safe place at home, like a shelf, to store library books.
