Damaged Books

What if my book gets damaged?

We all know that accidents happen. If you have an accident with your book, please tell the librarian as soon as possible. Please don’t try to fix the book yourself. There are special ways to repair a damaged book so it can still be used in the library.

If a book is accidentally damaged, a small damage fine may be applied. If a book is damaged to the point where it can no longer be used, the borrowing student will be charged the replacement cost. If parents are aware of the damage and are working toward replacing the book, students will still be able to check out books. If parents are not aware of the damage, then the student’s right to check out books will be suspended.

If a library book gets damaged, the most important thing to do is notify the librarian!
