No School, No Fine!

We've had a few students ask if fines are charged for overdue books on days we are out for snow. The answer, of course, is no. The computer's date due calendar is always adjusted to allow for these.

Some have asked if fines are charged when books are overdue because of a student's absence. In that case, it depends. Each overdue book is granted a grace period of 3 days before fines begin accruing. That typically gives everyone enough time in which to return a book. Make sure if you are out for an extended period your books are returned by mom or dad as soon as possible. If there are extenuating circumstances please stop by and speak with the librarian.

Remember, if you owe a fine of more than $1 or have out an overdue book your library privileges are suspended until you take care of this.
