Each morning between 7:50-8:30 AM, students have the opportunityto exchange their Library books. Students may return any number of books they have checked out and check out the same number of books they have returned. Students must first check in with their teacher before coming to the Library to exchange their books.
When are my books due?
Students are to return their books during the morning that their class visits the Library. Students return their books each week to check out new books during their Library visit.
Can I renew a book?

What if my book(s) are overdue?
A book becomes overdue after two weeks. When a book is overdue the student will be unable to check out. Library staff will inform the student that their book(s) are overdue and that they will need to be returned as soon as possible, so that they may check out new books.
What if I lose or damage a book?
Lost books must be paid for in order to clear student records. Students will be asked to send money for lost and damaged items depending on the repair or replacement cost. Cash or checks made out to "Campbell Elementary School" are accepted for payment. If a book is found before the end of the school year, your money will be refunded.
