Checking out Books
Students may check out seven (7) books at one time.
Books are checked out for a four (4) week time period.
Students may renew a book three (3) times.
Students may not check out a book if they have accrued $15.00 in fines.
There is a four (4) day grace period after the due date before fines are charged.
Students can login to Destiny and renew their book, but they need to renew before the due date or it won’t work.
The login to each student’s Destiny Account is the same as their login to campus Chromebooks.
Pay attention to due dates. It’s highly recommended students enter the date into their phone as a reminder.
Occasionally paper notices about fines and overdue books are sent to homeroom teachers to distribute. Occasionally PDF spreadsheets listing overdue books and fines are sent to English teachers.
If a student is absent, their books are still due. If students are out for a long term illness, please call or email the Teacher-Librarian to get the book renewed.
Overdue fines are collected in high school. It’s 10 cents a day for each day past the due date.
Fines are not assessed on weekends, vacation days, and half days.
If students lose a book they will be billed for the replacement cost of the book.
All lost books and fines must be paid for before a student can graduate. The registrar will hold transcripts of students that do not clear their accounts.
Library fines cannot be paid for via the student’s cafeteria account nor the student’s printing account.
