    Circulation

    Children from kindergarten through the 8th grade may check out books as follows:

    • Kindergarten - 1 book for 2 weeks
    • 1st Grade - 1 book for 2 weeks
    • 2nd-3rd Grade - 2 books for 2 weeks
    • 4th - 8th Grades - 3 books for 2 weeks

    Books may be renewed once if there are no holds on the title. Students are required to renew the book on the due date. Library privileges are suspended until an overdue book is returned, renewed or paid for if lost or damaged.

    It is suggested to students that books be kept in backpacks when not being read. This will allow students to have their books when it’s their day to visit the LMC and to protect them from harm.  A large, plastic, zip lock bag can also help protect books from damage and spills. Please be mindful of water bottles placed in backpacks. This can quickly ruin books! Always use the outside holders.

     

    Fines

    Please remember… students are responsible for the books they check out.   There are no fines charged for overdue books, but if a book is damaged or lost, the student will be asked to pay for the book. Until the book is paid for or returned, a student’s check out privileges are suspended. The care of books helps maintain our library collection for all of our students.

    If parents would like to limit the number of books their child can check out they may do so by contacting Meghan Zehr, Library Clerk, at 623-445-4513 or by email, meghan.zehr@dvusd.org.
