Circulation Policies

 

The Brown Library attempts to adequately meet the needs of the students and faculty by allowing the circulation of most items. 

The following policy guidelines exist so that all patrons can make use of the resources.

  • After the first semester, K-4 students may check out one book for two weeks and may renew a book one time.

  • After the first nine weeks, K-5 students may check out one book for two weeks and may renew a book one time.

  • Elementary Students (1st -6th grade) may check out two books for two weeks and may renew a book one time.

  • Middle School/High School Students (7th-12th grade) may check out two books for two weeks and may renew a book two times.

  • High School Students who are doing research may check out more than two books with approval from the Media Specialist.

 

Fines
  • No fines are charged on any day that the media center is not open, such as weekends and school holidays.
  • Elementary School fines are $0.10 per day

  • Middle School/High School fines are $0.25 per day

  • An overdue notice will be sent home after the item is two weeks overdue.  Elementary notices are printed and are given to the teachers to send home. High school notices are sent to the students school email address. After four overdue notices, the item will be marked as lost and a fee assessed for the cost of the book.

  • The librarian will determine the charge for a damaged book.

  • The charge for a lost book is the cost of the book.

  • Once an item has been assessed as lost, the fee is due and returning the book is not an option.  If the book is found, it may be kept or donated back to the library.

  • A notice for late fees or lost book fees will be sent home after they are assessed.

  • A fine notice will be sent twice.  After that time, the student may not be allowed to check out or renew items until the fine is paid.

 

 

     Elementary School students may not check out or renew a book if a fine exceeds $2.00 or more.

     High school students may not check out or renew a book if a fine exceeds $3.00 or more.

     The library reserves the right to have unpaid fines added to a school tuition account per school policy.

     Report cards may be held in the event that library fines have not been paid.
