  • LOST BOOKS!

     

    Library has barely opened and we already have lost books!  

    Books are being taken out of backpacks at "after school" programs, child care, or on buses.  These books rarely get returned and parents are responsible for paying.  

    Your child will be prevented from checking out another library book until payment for the book is received.  

    Please talk to your child about responsibility and help prevent the loss or damage of library books.
