About Our Library » Expectations


Scott Elementary Library does not charge fines for late books. When a book is overdue, more books cannot be checked out until the overdue book(s) are returned. Scott students are expected to take proper care for the books they check out and to return the books in good condition. If the book is lost or damaged beyond repair we will have to charge a replacement fee. We ask that you please refrain from repairing the book at home. Send a note with your child and the book to the library to let us know about any damages so we can see if repairs can be made. If the book cannot be repaired or found, a letter will be sent home to notify you of the replacement fee.
