 Library Policy Reminders – The students in grades 4 – 8 review these rules with Mrs. Fath at the
beginning of the year, but the students in the lower grades may not be aware of all the policies. The
following are the general rules that are followed:
one book checked out per week; exception - second book for a class assignment, science fair project, etc.
books are renewed once, thus two weeks for one book
fines - 10 cents per day, one grace day given; absent, weekend or vacation days are not counted
book fines are charged for grades four - eight
notices are given to the student for book fines; they are sent home if fine isn't paid in a timely fashion
book fines are still collected after the book is returned
time is given to look for a lost book; students are charged for the book's value according to original cost and
book usage
 books are not checked out if books are due during a school break such as Christmas vacation; this is to prevent
loss of books
