Rules & Policies

The Johnson Elementary Library Resource Center is committed to reinforcing 21st century information skills that will allow students to access and use all information resources while at the same time encouraging students to develop a positive and joyful attitude toward reading for pleasure.

Check Out

Grades K-1 may check out one book for one week.

Grades 2-6 may check out two books for one week.

Students may renew books as many times as needed to finish, unless another student has requested the book.  In that case, books may be kept for a maximum of one month.

Overdue Books

Students with books one month overdue will not be allowed to check out any new materials until they are returned, renewed, or replaced.

Students with books one month overdue will receive an overdue notice to take home.  After two months, a notice is mailed to the student’s home.  Students who have not returned or replaced their books at the end of the year will not be allowed to participate in Johnson’s annual Water Day.

Charges

There is no charge for overdue/late books.

Students will be charged the full price of a lost book or a book damaged beyond repair in order to replace it, or they may choose to replace it themselves with a new or gently used copy of the same title.

If a fine is paid for a lost book, and the book is later found in good condition, the full price of the book will be refunded to the student.
