Schmucker Library Policies
Students at Schmucker visit the library every week with most Language Arts classes. This is the student's opportunity to choose books and other materials they will need for their classes. Students may also come to the library on a pass as their classroom teacher allows. The Library is also open before school from 8:50am - 9:00am.
Policies for the Library at Schmucker are as follows:
- Students may check out up to 4 books.
- Books are due every 4 weeks. Books may be renewed if a longer time is necessary.
- Students who have anything overdue, may not check out any additional materials until the overdue item(s) are taken care of.
- If a book is lost, the student will need to pay the replacement cost for that book. If the book is found, after being paid for, the student will get their money back.
- Overdue notices are sent to students through email.
