Checkout Policy
 
FAMILY USE
 While we are happy to have our UP families use our library, younger siblings must be accompanied by a parent. We also ask that families limit their use of the library during the school day.
 
AFTER SCHOOL USE
UP students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian in the LMC after school.
For safety reasons, we cannot allow students in grades K – 2 to wait for an older sibling until 3:30 by themselves. They must be with an adult.
 
Book Care
 
FIND A SAFE PLACE TO KEEP YOUR BOOKS
Students are encouraged to find a safe place to keep their books at home, so that pets or younger brothers and sisters cannot cause unintentional damage. (crayon markings, chewing, tearing pages, etc.)
 
KEEP BOOKS DRY
Water can destroy books. A wet book will usually mildew requiring that it be discarded. Children are asked to protect their books on rainy days by carrying them in a backpack. They are further asked not to eat or drink while reading their books.
 
PROTECT THE PAGES OF THE BOOK
When children have been eating or playing outside, they are asked to wash hands before reading their book. They are also asked to turn the page from the corner to avoid wrinkling and tearing. Don’t forget to use a bookmark!
 
 
 
RETURN BOOKS ON TIME
Please help your child experience responsibility by giving friendly reminders about this, but making it their job to pack up the library books. Lost or damaged books are $20.00. Students with overdue books will not be permitted to check out.
