What to do with your library books

Students,

If you have library books out, you may receive an email with your transaction list from the library. Just keep the books in a safe place, so that you can return them when we can meet again. Remember that fines do not accumulate during times when school does not meet in the building including snow days and pandemics.

Note that you can use curbside library times to drop off your books, but you must email Mrs. Page before doing that to be sure she will be available to receive books.

If you have transferred to another JCPS school, you can return your books to the library there when we return to in-person education.
