• Borrowing Books

    Borrowing Limits
    Kindergartners borrow one book at a time. First graders borrow one book at the beginning of the year; usually by January the teacher and librarian decide to increase their limit to two books. Second graders borrow two books. Third graders borrow three books. Fourth through eighth graders may borrow up to four books.

    Loan Period
    The loan period for all library books is 2 weeks.  Students may renew their library books for an additional two weeks unless the items are needed by other students. 
    Overdue Books
    Students with overdue library books will not be allowed to check out more until the overdue items are returned.
    We do not charge fines for overdue library materials.
    Lost or Damaged Books
    Please help us keep our shelves filled with wonderful, clean books!  If a book is lost or damaged beyond repair, we ask the family to either purchase a replacement copy or pay to replace the book with cash or a check made out to the Public School of Brookline.
