Policies and ProceduresClass Visits
Most English classes have a scheduled visit to the Media Center once every other week. If a student finishes a book before their next class visit, they may come to the Media Center and return and/or check out a new one.
Students are required to show their Fallon ID card to check out a library book. It is a student's responsibility to return or renew their material on time even if their class does not have a timely scheduled visit. The loan period is two weeks from the day the material is checked out. Late fee charges are not levied but check out and other school privileges may be suspended until the overdue status is cleared up.Students may come into the Media Center before school and after school to keep their circulated materials current and off an overdue listing.Number of Personal Pleasure Books
# of Books
2This reflects the number of pleasure books a student may have out at any one time. Exceptions are made for students, on a site by site basis, for research reports and other projects. A student may come to the Media Center between class visits to return and check out new selections.
Length of Checkout Period and Renewals
Books are checked out for a two week period (one week check out and one week automatic renewal.)All students are permitted to keep a book as long as needed if being used for a school assignment.
NOTE: Books in popular series, highly requested titles, all graphic novels or books on hold for another studentmay not be renewed past the initial two week period. Please understand that this is to assist in gettting the popular books into the hands of more students during the school year.Overdue Policy
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. Periodically, overdue notices will be sent to the student's English class. If no action is taken by the student to remedy the situation a notice will be set home via email or U.S. mail. We encourage students to remember that keeping their library material current is their responsibility; however gentle reminders from parents/guardians are very helpful.Damaged and Lost BooksEach 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.
