Borrowing library materials Assigned reading books, fiction and non-fiction novels, magazines, audiovisual materials are checked out from and returned to the circulation desk.
Library materials are checked out by the person who will use them and must be returned to the library on time.
Books can be loaned for a period of two weeks. If a student wants to keep a certain book for a longer period of time, the item can be renewed and the deadline can be prolonged for another two weeks. If the item is on demand, it may not be renewed.
For students' daily reading at home and Dear, the checkout limit is 2 books. (i.e. a student can have only 2 books checked out in his/her name. Those need to be returned before checking out new books.)
Additional reading material assigned by subject teachers, reading support teachers and teacher librarians is excluded from the limit.
Returning library materials
Students are expected to return books on time and in the same condition as they were prior to checking out. In case of a damaged book, the student has to pay a fine (see Lost books and fines below) or replace the book.
You are responsible for all the items checked out to your name. Do not pass them on to another person.
Lost books and fines
In cast of a lost or a damaged book, the student will be required to pay the cost of the book and an
additional 30% shipping & custom charges.
Alternatively, students can bring a new copy of the damaged/ lost book as a replacement.
Students who fail to return all textbooks and library books, pay or replace lost books at the end of the school year will not be given the final report card.
