Students have daily access to the library and may come each day for a new book with teacher permission. Books may be renewed for two additional times and then must be returned for others to enjoy.
Please return damaged books to the library for repair. Accidents can and do happen. Pets chew books, younger siblings redesign them, snack boxes leak, etc. Books that become damaged beyond repair must be replaced so others may continue to check them out. A damage bill with replacement costs will be sent home. Should a page accidentally rip, please return your book to the library and we will repair the page with special tape. Checkout privileges are suspended until arrangements are made between parents and the Library Media Center to take care of Damaged Book Fines.
There is not a fine for overdue books. However, students must return books to check out books and maintain their book limit.
Books that have not surfaced in 30 days are presumed to be lost. An overdue bill with the cost of replacing the book will be sent home. Checkout privileges are suspended until arrangements are made between parents and the Library Media Center to take care of Lost Books.
If a lost book is found within the same year it was paid for, you may return it to the library and our school bookkeeper will issue a refund check. If a lost book is found during another school year the book is yours to keep.
The mission of the Trinity Library Media Center is to provide materials and resources to support the curriculum while encouraging the love of reading and independent inquiry. Our goal is that students will develop into independent library users of information and technology while becoming life-long learners with a love of reading.
Mission Statement for Students:
The Trinity Library Media Center provides the resources that teachers and students need during the school year, but we also want to you to read amazing stories and learn about things that interest you that we might not talk about very much while we’re in school. During your time in the LMC, we want you learn to be independent and find the things you need and want so you can explore and answer questions you might have. If you learn to do it now, you can do this at other schools and when you are an adult!
