In an effort to develop lifelong users of libraries, students receive instruction on the rules and responsibilities of library usage.
Students are responsible for the care and keeping of all library materials. Additionally, students are aware of the importance of keeping due dates and the financial responsibilities associated with the loss or damage of library materials.
Students visit the library frequently. Independent borrowing is encouraged and students visit the library at their point of need. The library's open borrowing policy allows students the opportunity to circulate books during library operation hours.
Dag students utilize the media center with their classroom teachers who bring them to the media center to use print, nonprint and electronic resources.
How many books can I get?
Students may have checked out at any one time up to four library materials. A combination of books and magazines may be circulated.
Magazines circulate for 4 weeks.
Books circulate for 4 weeks.
What if I can't find a book I borrowed or what if the dog ate it?
Overdue notices are sent out to students as a gentle reminder to return library materials. Students who have lost or damaged materials must pay to replace the materials. This procedure is detailed in Board of Education policy.
A student with an overdue book cannot check out any other books/materials until the overdue book is found or payment is made so the book can be replaced.
