Overdue and Lost Materials Policy

Library materials are shared by all students. Therefore, students are expected to return books by the due date stamped on the back of the library book. Students are expected to find a safe place to keep borrowed books at home. Students will be responsible for replacing or paying for lost books or books damaged beyond repair.  There are no overdue fines; however students may be limited until all overdue items have been returned. Overdue notices will be sent regularly or you can have your child log in (ID#, password) to his/her library account from home to see what he/she has checked out.  Please help your child find a consistent and safe place to keep his/her library books at home to prevent damage and loss.

 Online Resources

MCPS has a number of online resources for students and their families to use. From online encyclopedias to child friendly databases, these resources are a welcome help to many inquiry projects. Please email Mrs. Chuk in the media center for logins and passwords for home access.
