LMC Policies

Book Checkout and Renewals

Kindergarten and First Grade students may check out one book at a time. 
Second, third, and fourth grade students may check out two books at a time.
Occasionally, students may check out more books for research projects. 
Second through Fourth Graders are encouraged to check out at least one
just right book."  Their second item may be an "easy" book to read for fun
or a "challenge" book that they might be reading out loud with an adult or
older sibling at home.  


Books are automatically checked out for a period of two weeks before
becoming overdue.  However, students are encouraged to bring their books
to LMC each week.  They can then renew books up to two times, if necessary.
Returning books on time is important as other students are often waiting to
check them out.  



Overdue Materials


Overdue notices are printed automatically by our computer system and will
be sent home with students regularly.  Once a book is 4 weeks overdue, it is
considered lost and needs to either be returned or paid for. Students with
books more than 4 weeks overdue will not be allowed to check out new mater-
ials until taking care of the overdue book.
If a student returns a book that
was previously paid for during the current school year, the lost book fine
will be refunded.
