Circulation Policy (books)
Books can be borrowed for four weeks. Students may renew their book once if it is close to the end of the marking period. If you have more than two overdue books they must be returned before you check out more books. Any overdue books from previous years must be returned before getting more. 


There are no fines for overdue items. However, if a book is damaged or lost you will be responsible for paying for a new book or replacing it. New books are not allowed to be checked out until the overdue materials have been returned or replaced. You may replace lost books by buying used books from Amazon for a very reasonable cost.
