POLICIES

Students must be respectful of the persons and property of others while researching in the LMC. 

In order to minimize possible errors in records, an ID card is the best method for checking out materials. No one may check out materials on another person's barcode number.

Books from the general collection may be checked out for four weeks with privilege of renewal two times as long as there is no waiting list for the book.  Reference books and magazines may be checked out overnight, with the understanding that the materials are due before school begins the following morning.

OVERDUE AND FINE POLICY

Overdue 4-week books are charged 5 cents per school day late; however, if the book is returned within the grace period (one school day after the due date) no charge will be made.

Overnight books and materials which are not returned the following morning will be charged 25 cents for each day late.

Delinquent books (not returned within two months) will be billed for the amount of the book plus any fines accrued.  It is better for the borrower to report a book lost rather than to accumulate overdue fines.  If the book is later found, the price of the book will be refunded.

If a magazine is lost, the borrower must replace it or pay a replacement handling charge equal to the cost of the magazine plus $2.  If the shipping bag is lost, the charge is $1.

Students who have an overdue fine and/or books may not check out additional materials until the materials are returned and the fines are paid.  However, these students may continue to use materials within the confines of the Library Media Center.
