Library Agreements 2023-2024

  • Be Respectful of other people when using the library. Students will maintain an atmosphere that allows others to focus and study by keeping conversations at a level that will not disturb others. 

  • If a student loses or damages a book, please notify the librarian immediately. The student  will pay the cost to replace the book . The cost to replace or repair will vary depending on the type of book (hardback/paperback) and the availability of the title.

  • Students may check out a book for TWO weeks. They will receive a receipt at checkout time that notes the title of the book and the DUE date. If a student needs more time to finish a book they may renew it for two more weeks. When a book is not returned on time the student will receive a reminder notice that it is overdue.   After 30 days  if the book has not been returned, it will be considered lost.

  • When students are in the library they must follow PVSD tech guidelines and protocols.
