Circulation Policies and Procedures
A. Circulation Policies of Print Materials
Students may check out two books from the library for a period of two weeks. Students will check out materials using their assigned
library number. A book may be renewed indefinitely as long as there
is not a reserve on it. If there is a reserve on a book, the maximum
number of check outs is two times (four weeks). Materials must be
checked out at the circulation desk before being taken from the
library. The student must bring the book to the library to renew it.
Students are responsible for all materials checked out in his or her
name. Magazines do not circulate. Books are to be returned to the
library book drop in the circulation desk. Students with overdue materials may not check out anymore materials until they have returned the overdue ones. Students with overdue books may put one book on hold for one day.
Each 1st block teacher will be sent a list of his or her students that have overdue books monthly
Students may not check out reference books and teacher-reserve materials.
a student wants a book that is currently checked out, he or she may
put a reserve on it. This means he or she logs onto the catalog and puts
a hold on the item they wish to reserve. When the book is returned, a
notice will be sent to the student to let him or her know the book is
ready for pick-up. The book will be kept behind the desk for 2 school
days. If it is not picked up at the end of that time, it will go to the
next person on the reserve list or if there is no other reserve, it
will be put back on the shelf.
Teachers may check out as many books as needed.
Teachers may keep these books for up to three weeks. Teachers may
check out reference materials for up to one week. Students who are
sent to check out books in a teacher's name must have a signed request
from that teacher before the books may be checked out in the teacher's
name. Professional materials are available for teacher use.
B. Circulation Procedures of Non-print Materials
staff members will be allowed to checkout non-print materials such as
videos, CDs, DVDs, etc. Please return these to the library as soon as
you have finished with the materials in your classroom.
C. Circulation Procedures of Equipment
Library Media Center has a number of items available for checkout to
teachers and staff. Please remember to be courteous of others, and do
not keep any equipment in your room, if it is not in use. Please do not send a student to check out any equipment.
This must be done by the teacher or support staff. Equipment is
checked out through the library automation system. You may schedule
equipment checkout ahead of time.
