Fines and Fees:
Students are charged 10¢ per item per school day for overdue items.
A fine is not assessed for weekends, holidays, or times the library is closed, such as testing days.
Student accounts remain in good standing and clear for checkout, unless they own $5.00 or more. If student fines are over $5.00, students must pay down their fees to return to unrestricted checkout. In the meantime a one-in, one out circulation policy will be in place.
Students are assessed a fee for the price of replacing a book if it is lost/damaged or 60 days overdue.
