FHS Library Policies & Procedures
All books and electronic devices are electronically checked out for a 2 week period. All material should be brought back to be renewed if more time is needed. All materials are subject to a late fee if material is not returned in specified time. No more than two books will be checked out at any time unless another book is needed for class work or projects. Special permission will be given from your teacher or librarian if this is required. Media such as Playaway Books and Kindles will only be checked out if a permission contract, signed by parent/guardian, is on file in the library.
A student is responsible for his/her library book or media and must pay for the lost or damaged materials. Anything outside of “normal” wear and tear is the student’s responsibility. In order to check out a Kindle or a Playaway Book a student must have a permission contract signed by parent/guardian on file in the library. Replacement cost for a Kindle is $154.00, a Playaway
Book is $75.00, and book replacement is $20.00. Students are not allowed to download any materials on the electric devices. Students who abuse library property or library rules will lose their library privilege.
The library is open each day from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Senior High days are on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. It will be available to Junior High students on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students are allowed to visit the library before school, during lunch, and during school hours until the library closes on their given days. Any student may come to the library after school regardless of scheduled days. If a student has a special request to visit the library, please feel free to check with the librarian.
The library provides a multitude of books, magazines, pamphlets, and newspapers for study and reading appreciation. These are for students’ use and pleasure. Please be quiet so that everyone may enjoy a pleasant time for reading and studying. Gum is not permitted in the library.
Fines and lost books:
A fine of .05 cents per day is charged for overdue books. No fine is charged for weekends, holidays, or days when the student is absent. A student is responsible for his/her library book(s) and must pay for lost or damaged books. Students who abuse library property or rules will lose the privilege of using the library. If a book is lost, check in the library to see if it has been turned in. A “Lost and Found” is provided for that purpose.
