Book Care Tips:

  • Overdue Library Books!                                                                                                                        Yes, we have thousands of library books, but books still need to be returned in an acceptable and in a timely manner. Please keep books in a safe place; preferably a dry, spill-proof backpack. Then return the books when they are due. If the book has been lost or damaged beyond repair, please pay the fine in the office.
