Checkout Policy


  • Scholars must have a pass and be wearing their ID badges when they come to the media center.
  • Scholars may check out one book at a time for a period of
    weeks. After a scholar has turned in six (6) book reports he or she may check out two books at a time.  Books may be renewed only once. Scholars earn one Mustang Buck for every book report they turn in and one for every book returned.
  • Scholars are not charged overdue fines.  They are only charged if they have lost any library materials. 
  • Scholars are not allowed to borrow books if they have overdue materials.  
  • Once the overdue materials are returned, or lost books are paid for, borrowing privileges will begin again.
  • We will refund money for any books that are found before the school year ends if the amount is over $10.00. If the amount is $10.00 or less, we will not be able to provide a refund.
  • Scholars will check out books as a class on the week and day their classes are assigned to visit the media center.  For example, ARMS scholars will check out books as a class one week and the next week is reserved for EXCEL scholars.  Scholars should expect to visit the library as a class every other week.  However, scholars may visit the media center individually at any time.
