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.

Fines

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.

Chrome books
Chrome books and chargers are borrowed for the year. Students are responsible for the chrome book and charger. Chrome book repairs are managed through the library – students will bring their device to the library for repair and receive a loaner to borrow while their original device is being repaired.

Lost devices and chargers must be paid for or replaced. You may replace lost chargers by buying a replacement from Amazon.com for a very reasonable cost.

Replacement Charger part numbers:

Dell HA65NS5-00

Printing
