Books are due two or three weeks (depending on grade) after the checkout date. 
 
 
What if I can't find my book?   Usually we will renew the book one time to give you more time to find it.  If your child has an overdue or lost library book beyond one renewal date, they will not be allowed to check-out another book until the missing book is taken care of.  We do not charge late fees.  If the book comes back damaged or if the book is lost, we charge for the replacement cost of the book plus a $3 fee for library materials that were used to get the book ready for checkout (stickers, book covers, labels, tape, etc.)  Paying for a book will remove the book from your child's account and will allow them to check out once again. 
 
YA Reading Material  YA is the abbreviation for Young Adult.  Because our school serves grades K-8 we have established a YA reading policy.  Grades K-4 may not check out YA materials without parent approval.  Grades 5-8 are allowed YA materials.  Many families want to make decisions about YA materials on their own.  If you allow your child to check out YA materials before 5th grade, please let the library know, we will mark it on your child's account. The following chart will give you an idea of how and why a book may be marked YA.
