• Lost Book Procedure
     
    Misplacing books happens!  When you first realize you can't find a library book, please do the following:
     
    1.  Take everything out of your locker to make sure it isn't there.
    2.  Look in every room where you have a class to see if it might have been left in a room in the building. 
    • Check book shelves in the classroom
    • Talk to each teacher and let them know what book you are missing
    3.  Have people at home help you look...
    • under your bed
    • on bookshelves at home
    • under furniture
    • in the family car
    ... I'm sure you have a number of places at home you search when things are missing.

    After you have searched all these places and if the book is still missing, please stop in the library and talk to us about next steps.  Because books often turn up in a couple weeks, no bill for the book will be prepared until the book is overdue by 4 weeks.  No fines are charged at MNMS Library so the waiting time is not costing  you money.  Meanwhile please continue to search for the book.  You will continue to receive overdue notices, but consider them as reminders to keep looking for the book.

    At the end of the 4 weeks we will mark the book lost.  We will then determine the replacement cost, plus a $5 processing fee. The library is able to obtain books at a greatly reduced price and since there is special processing involved, we can not accept a replacement copy from the borrower.  The book must be replaced by the librarian.

    If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Delafield

    Damaged Book Procedure
     
    Accidents happen!  When you first realize the book is damaged, PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO REPAIR IT YOURSELF!  We have specific processes and materials that are best to use.  Even a torn page needs special tape.

    Hand a damaged book directly to Mrs. Bowen or Mrs. Delafield.  Do not put it in a book drop.
    For minor damage there is no fee.  If there is significant damage such as liquid damage or damaged covers, a fee will be assessed.

    If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Delafield
