Announcements:

 

As the year draws to a close please make sure that your student have turned in all of their library books. Be sure to check bedrooms, vehicles, and backpacks for any missing books that you may have received a notice for past due items.

The last day of check outs for books will be May 27th, 2022 with returns being expected back by June 4th, 2022 when the library closes for class visits for the 2021-2022 school year.

After June 4th any lost or not returned book will be posted as a fee to your students account.  Should you find the book after that timeframe or during the summer months please have your student return it to have the fee waived.
