Circulation Procedures

Purpose

The circulation procedures are to provide information on what may be checked out of the Media Center and by whom.

Materials Circulation

  • Students visit the library every week for a 40 minute period.
  • Each 2nd and 3rd grade students are allowed one (1) book to check out per library visit. Upon their next visit, if they forget to bring their library book back on time, they are allowed to check out (1) paperback book. The second time they forget to bring their library books back on time, no books will be allowed to be checked out until the library books are returned.
  • The circulation schedule for students is one week but they are able to renew a book to read for another week.
  • Faculty may borrow as many books and materials as they need to support lessons.
