Library Fines

  • There are no fines for overdue books. If the books are not returned, the student may not check out until the book is returned. However, books that are long overdue may be issued a fine. 


    important to know

    Long Overdue Books - - -

    1. For books that have not been returned in a timely manner, a note will be emailed, messaged via Dojo, or sent home with your child that includes the missing book's information.

    2. After 45 days, the long overdue book is considered LOST and a fine is created.

    3. An invoice is created in My School Bucks. If the books are returned, the fine can be deleted.



      • Lost Books

        • If a student/parent believes a book to be lost, please let the librarian know immediately.  Sometimes books do not get scanned back in, for whatever reason.  They may be believed to be lost when, in fact, they are sitting on the shelf in the library.  Making the librarian aware of the issue may be an easy solution.
        • If, in fact, the book is lost, the librarian will issue a fine and an invoice will be emailed to the parent/guardian through My School Bucks.

        Damaged Books

        • Library books with minor damage can most likely be repaired by the librarian. 
        • Extreme damage, such as water/drink/food spills and pet chewing will result in a fine to replace the book. 
        • Parents/guardians will be issued an invoice through My School Bucks for damaged books. 



        Although I teach the students to be responsible with their library books, the parent is ultimately responsible for lost, stolen, damaged books. If, at any time, you do not want your student to bring books home, please contact the library right away.
