Overdue/Lost/Damaged Library Materials

Overdue Books


There are no fines for overdue books; however, parents will receive e-mail notices of overdue items.  Students are allowed to renew their overdue items; however, if an item is on hold for another student, we can not renew the item. 

Damaged/Lost Books:


Books will get damaged or lost. Water, food, dogs, and siblings can damage books beyond our ability to repair. When this happens, students will be charged based on cost of the book. Students with regular occurrences of damaged/lost books may be asked to keep Library books at school or lose checkout privileges (contingent on discussion with classroom teacher).


A letter will be sent home with the student listing the damage and replacement cost(s). 

 Payment for damaged/lost books may be made in cash or by check.  Checks need to be made out to HVES.
