Book Check Out Policies

Library books and magazines are due in two weeks. They can be renewed, unless they are on hold.

Overdue Books and Good Standing

Overdue notices are sent weekly to student CRCSD email account. Ask Mrs. Kruse if you don’t know how to access this account.

Students with one overdue book are still in good standing, and can continue to check out books.

Students with two or more overdue books need to work to return to good standing, and can borrow an honor book from Mrs. Kruse.

Honor books are books that Mrs. Kruse has personally purchased to allow all students to always have a book in hand. Students that have books that they would like to donate to the honor book collection can talk to Mrs. Kruse. Please return honor books and overdue books in a timely manner.

Overdue fines are not charged, however lost or damaged books need to be paid for by students. If you are unable to pay for your lost or damaged book, talk to Mrs. Kruse about volunteering. Please do not throw away books, always return them and let librarian decide if the book is still usable.
