    student forgets to return their library book, they aren't allowedwill be reminded to check out a new book until they bring it back. While their classmates are checking out a new book, they will have an opportunity to ‘browse’ books, but not take a new book home.back the following week.
    Please know that Mr. Rogers is never angry or upset with a child if they forget their library book. This will probably happen to everyone at one time or another, and is not a reason for a student to be upset. Students are simply reminded to bring the book the following week so that they have the enjoyment and practice of selecting a new title.
    After a few weeks of forgetting a book, a reminder notice will be sent home to make the family aware of what book has been taken home.
    3rd - 8th grade students take home 2 library books every week (as needed). Students should be reading longer books that may take more than a week to finish. They are always able to switch books sooner if they need to, by coming to the library at the end of the day with a pass from their teacher.
    Other information about book check-out:
    ...
    lost books: $15.$10.
    Because students are choosing books themselves, you may find that the book is too hard or too easy for your child. This should improve as we learn how to pick appropriate titles. Of course, if there is an issue with any selection please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Rogers.
    4th – 8th grade students are able to manage their accounts online and see what books they have checked out, renew books, or put books on hold. See Mr. Rogers for username and password if you’re interested in this!
