    Check Out Policy


    Most weeks, children come with their class to check out books in the library.  

    The loan period is for two weeks.  Refer to PCP calendar to find out what day your child comes to library – the day changes every week.  


    Grade Number of books allowed to check out each week

    K 1-2 books

    1st 1-3 books

    2nd 3-4 books 

    3rd 3-4 books 

    4th 4-5 books 

    5th 5-6 books 


    Here’s a couple check out reminders:

       1. Students can return books to the “Return Books” crate in the library before school or anytime during the school day.

    2.Repeated renewals are allowed, unless the book is in high demand, then the book must be returned in two weeks.

        3. If students forget to return their library books, they can take a book or two from the “Grab & Go” bins. “Grab & Go” books are not cataloged and are circulated on the honor system.


        4.There are no fines for overdue books. If a book is lost or damaged, contact Ms. Kathleen for replacement options. Ideally, the title should be replaced by paying via School Pay or checks payable to “JSIS Library”.


    Thank you,

    Ms. Kathleen
