Library FAQS

Book Exchange

  • Book exchange occurs once a week during scheduled library classes. 

  • All students are allowed 1 book per week, which they may renew as many times as needed to finish reading.

  • If a student forgets a book on their scheduled class day, they are not able to check out another book during class. 

  • If they are able to come to the library at another time and I am available, they may exchange their book.

  • If a library book is lost or damaged, we ask that you replace the book with the same book in the same format.  For example, if a hard copy is lost or damaged, replace with it with a hard copy. If it is paperback replace with a paperback. If a book is out of print, I will offer a suggestion or two that will be a good replacement.
