Overdue slips are sent home each Monday for books that are two weeks overdue. An invoice will be sent to parents for any damaged or long overdue library books. Invoices are to be paid at the school office.
Students will be unable to borrow if they have overdue library books.
All students need a library bag if they wish to borrow books. Our policy is no bag no borrowing. This helps to protect books from damage.
