Library Policies

Checkout

Students check out books on their scheduled visit once a week (Monday - Friday). 
  • Kindergarten - 1st grade: 1 book

  • 2nd - 3rd grade: 2 books 

  • 4th - 6th 3 books

Kindergarten students start checking out books 2nd semester and are required to keep their library books in their classrooms

(K - 5) Library books are due back on a student's next scheduled visit. 

6th graders are allowed to check out books for 2 weeks at a time.

Students are required to bring books to the media center to renew.

 

Overdues 

Minneola does not charge daily fines, but we do hold students accountable for materials that they check out.  If a book is lost or seriously damaged, students are asked to pay the original purchase price of that material.  Overdue notices are sent home with the students when necessary. 

 

Conduct in the Media Center 

  • Students are expected to follow the Mustang Star Rules (Safe, Trustworthy, Accountable, Respectful, Successful)

  • Use walking feet

  • Use inside voices

  • Keep all 4 legs of the chair on the floor

  • Use Shelf markers to help put books back where they belong (3rd -5th graders)

 

(Students in grades 3-5 are also asked to sign a copy of the Student Agreement written below at the beginning of the school year)

 

Student Agreement

I have been instructed in careful and respectful handling of books.  I understand it is a privilege to use the library and the materials in it.  I agree to enjoy and return all library books that I borrow on time and in good condition.  I know that if I lose or damage a library book, I am responsible for paying the original cost of that book.  I also understand, if there is an overdue/lost book from last year, I will not be allowed to check out until the book(s) have been returned or paid for.
