Policies and Procedures

  • Checking out books from our school’s library is a privilege and a vital part of the learning process. Policies help ensure our students are responsible stewards of our wide collection of books so that all students will continue to have access to these valuable resources.

    Book Checkout Policy:

     

    • Checkout is for one week and books may be renewed twice
    • Kindergarten students may check out 1 book
    • Students in Grade 1-5 may check out 2 books

    Damaged Books:

    • If a book is damaged, please bring the book and we will determine if it can be repaired, or the fee for replacing the book
    • Fees will not be assessed for damage due to normal wear and tea

    Overdue Book Policy:

    • If a book is not returned or renewed after one week, an overdue notice will be issued to the student through the classroom teacher
    • The student will not be allowed to borrow any more books until all overdue books are returned
    • When several overdue notices have been issued, we will presume the book is lost

    Options for Lost Books:

    • Find the item
    • Pay the replacement fee
    • Purchase a replacement copy of the book for the library

    Replacement fees can be found on the overdue notice and can be paid by cash or check. Checks should be made payable to Wiles Elementary. The payment is refundable if a lost book is found and returned during the current school year.
