Library Rules

Respect the library materials

Everything has a correct place (so we'll be able to find what we need)

Always share (so we'll return things when they are due)

Don‛t disturb others working in the library (so we'll all have a special place to read and work)

(In addition, all school rules apply in regards to proper behavior.)


· When library rules are broken, the following consequences will apply:

· Student will be asked to correct the behavior

· Oral warning will be issued

· Removal from the group activity

· Notification to classroom teacher

· Not allowed to checkout a book and a phone call to parents

· Referral to office

Library Procedures

· Enter the library quietly.

· Line up at the circulation desk to check-in book.

· Go to your assigned seat.

· Raise your hand and wait to be called on before speaking.

· Keep hands, feet, and materials to yourself.

· Bring only your library book to the library

CHECK-IN Procedures

· Upon entering the library, line up at the circulation desk to return your book.

CHECK-OUT Procedures

· Kindergarten & 1st grade students may check out one book each class.

· 2nd grade – 6th grade may check out 2 books each class.

· If an additional book is needed such as an Accelerated Reader or a class project, students may checkout an additional book with permission from Mrs. Vogel-Davis.

· All books that are checked out are due back at the next library class.

· Students may renew a book if the book has not been

reserved for another student or teacher.

· Reference materials and magazines are not available for checkout and must be used within the library media center.

Overdue Materials

· Students who have overdue materials may not check out other materials until the overdue materials are returned. There are no exceptions to this policy.

Lost, Damaged, Overdue Books

· Lost Books

o All lost books must be paid for in full. The cost for each book is the cost of replacement.

· Damaged Books

o Any damaged book must be reported. All minor repairs will be made in the library at no cost to the student.

o If a book is damaged beyond the repair capabilities of the library, the student will be responsible for the replacement cost of the book.

· When a student is charged for a lost or damaged book, the student may not check out any materials until the charges are cleared from the account.

· If a charge for a lost or damaged book is not cleared by the end of the school year, it will be considered an obligation.
