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 graders borrow four books and fifth graders may borrow up to five books. Middle school students in grades 6 - 8 may borrow up to five books at a time.
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.
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 that the student pay to replace the book; $6.00 for paperback books or $16.00 for hardcover books. A check should be made out to the Lawrence School Library and turned into the library so that we can purchase a new copy of the title that was lost or damaged.
