Mineral Wells Junior High Library Expectations
MWJH students may check out two books for a two week time period.
Every time the student comes to the library with their ELA teacher, they must bring their
library books. Even the books they may be rechecking.
At the end of the two week time period, the student has a five day grace period to turn in books without any penalties. At the end of the grace period, a student is fined five cents per day per book (weekend and holidays excluded)
Librarian may grant permission for a book to be rechecked. Highly requested books may only be rechecked once.
If books are not returned by the next class period students will write the rules of being responsible in the library, during their class time.
Once a library book is four weeks past due, student will serve lunch detention until lost book fine is paid, OR book is returned.
Students may visit the library any time the lights are on as long as they have a library pass from their classroom teacher.
Any time a student comes to the library and it is not during their scheduled library time, they must sign in as they enter, and out as they exit. (Sign in computer located by door)
Any time a student pays for a lost book but finds it later and returns it in good condition, the money will be refunded minus the fine that would be assessed up to the date the book was paid for.
Damaged books will be evaluated and charged based on the condition and possibility of repair.
There will be opportunities to participate for prize drawings throughout the year in the library. Everyone is encouraged to take part in the fun!
