Policies and Procedures
Number of Books
This reflects the number of books a student may have out at any
one time. Exceptions are made for students in Grades 3-8, on a
site by site basis, for research reports and other projects. A
student may come to the Library Media Center between class visits to
return a completed book and check out a new selection. Teacher
permission must be obtained during school hours.
Length of Checkout Period and Renewals
All students are permitted to keep a book as long as needed
(within reason) under the following circumstances:
We ask that the books be brought in each week for renewal to help
students keep better track of their books. It is easier to locate a
book when it is known that the book must be presented each week.
This really helps cut down the number of misplaced or lost books.
Dublin Unified School District does not charge late fees for overdue
books. However, a student will not be able to check out a new book
until the overdue one is returned. This could result in the student
not able to check out a new book each week. We encourage the
students that remembering library books is their responsibility;
however gentle reminders from parents/guardians arevery helpful.
Damaged and Lost Books
Each year the schools in the Dublin Unified School District Library
Media Centers suffer significant losses and/or damages to books
and materials which are not properly cared for by students. In
order to maintain the quality of service for all students, it is
necessary for lost or damaged books to be replaced. You will
receive a bill notice for the replacement cost of the book if the
student has lost or damaged it.
