Lending Guidelines for the Upper School Library

  • Beginning in August 2017, laptops and other equipment will be checked out from the IT Office.
  • Students may borrow a maximum of ten materials for two weeks.
  • Material may be renewed, on or before the due date, unless another patron has placed a hold on the resource.
  • Students receive a due date reminder by email the day before their materials are due.
  • Students can renew materials and place holds themselves when logged into Destiny.
  • Overdue notices are sent weekly. Notices are sent electronically by email to students’ email addresses.
  • Students with overdue material may not borrow additional material.
  • All patrons will be responsible for the replacement cost of lost or damaged material.
  • At the end of each month, library material that is more than two months overdue will be marked as lost. The replacement cost will be included in the next tuition mailing if not resolved beforehand.
  • At the end of the academic school year, students must clear their library accounts. Students and parents will be notified by email, letter and/or phone call of outstanding accounts.
  • If a ‘lost’ item was paid for and is subsequently found and returned to the library in good condition during the same academic school year, the patron’s replacement money will be refunded.
