Lost or Damaged Books

    • Fees:
      • $20.00 hardback or library bound 
      • $7.50 for a paperback
      • Payment for a damaged book is due immediately. 
      • You may wait and pay for a lost book when inventory is complete in May to see if it turns up.
        • If you pay for a hardback or library bound book and it is found within the same school year, $10.00 will be refunded
        • Paperback book charges are nonrefundable.
      • Late fees are not charged  
    • Replacement books are NOT accepted in lieu of the fine. 
      • The fine is a standard price set by the district, not necessarily the cost of the book.
    • Damaged fines will be assesd for:
      • Moisture damage- however minor
      • Body fluid of any kind
      • Pulled or shredded spine
      • Excessive damage- There's no way a book was checked out that way! 
        • Some of our books are older and have minor damage; your child will not be charged for this. If a book is returned in an unreadable or excessively damaged state, it did not leave the library that way!

    I understand that it can be frustrating to pay for a lost or damaged book, but please remember that your payment helps us keep the library full of updated books for our students for many years. Consider it a donation to your child's school library program.

  • We would like especially thank Mr. & Mrs. Roger Ballard for the generous donations they have made to our library.  Through their generosity, we are able to add countless new books to our collection throughout the year. 
     
     
    Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Ballard!
