A student may keep a book for up to two weeks, after that time the book is considered overdue by our computer system, and the student will be sent a reminder notice. (These notices go home in the Monday folder.) If the student isn't finished reading the book yet, he or she just needs to bring the book back to the library to check it out again. If the student is finished with the book, he or she can return it and check out another book. Our library does not charge fines for overdue books, but students cannot check out another book until overdue books are returned or re-checked out.
Sometimes mistakes do happen, so if a student receives a notice but thinks the book was turned in, please drop me a note. I will generally ask the child to look again at home and in the classroom, and I will check the shelves for the book.
