Library News

We're in the home stretch of Library for this school year. The Library will be closed for inventory starting May 30th. Thank you in advance for helping your students remember to get their library materials turned in as this will make our inventory process much easier. Notices will be sent out the week of the 30th for students that have fines and overdue books. Fines are payable in cash only at the office. Please put payment in an envelope with your child's name on it and turn it into the office.

If your student has a lost book, it may turn up during inventory. If that happens, I will contact you via email. All charges for lost books will appear on your July 1st statement.

May 26th - All library materials due

June 9th - Last day to pay overdue fines. Fines not paid by this date will be assessed a $3.00 fee and will be charged to your last school bill in June
