Saks High School Library
The library is a material center, and its primary purpose is to help the students and teachers. All books and materials belong to everyone; therefore, all must share these materials. The media specialist believes her duty is to provide equal service to all students and teachers, and she hopes that eveyone will use the library often.
Please read the following policies and please cooperate with us so that all may use the library:
- The library is open Monday through Friday, 7:12 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Books may be checked out and returned during break, before and after school, and during the class periods.
- To check out a book, the student must present the book at the circulation desk so that it may be scanned.
- All books--except reference books, classroom collections, and magazines--may be checked out for two weeks. At the end of two weeks, a book may be renewed by bringing the book back to the library to be scanned again.
- A fine of five cents ($.05) per school day for each overdue book will be charged. The maximum fine for each book will be no greater than the cost of the book.
- A student who has an overdue book may not check out another book until the overdue book is returned.
- Students must pay for any lost or damaged book. When a student pays for the book, the fine is cancelled.
- Magazines may only be used in the library.
- A student may come to the library with a teacher who has reserved the library. The classroom teacher is still in charge of the student, as in the regular classroom. A student cannot leave the library unless the student has permission from the classroom teacher.
- A student coming without a classroom teacher must leave a written pass from the classroom teacher on the circulation desk. The pass must contain the student's name, the date, the time, and the classroom teacher's signature. The student may not leave the library without written permission from the librarian.
