Playaways are MP3 players that students can use to listen to books. Students in grades 4-5 are eligible to checkout Playaways as long as there is a signed parent permission slip and there is not a history of overdue books. Students must use their own headphones. Playaways are available for one week checkout only and may not be renewed. Download your copy of the permission slip by clicking on the Playaways headline.
Library Schedule 2019-2020
WHEN ARE BOOKS DUE?
All library books are due the morning of your student's scheduled library time each week (see calendar above). Books may be renewed at the teacher's or librarian's discretion.
Overdue notices are emailed to parents on Saturday morning. If a book is lost or damaged, a replacement cost will need to be paid prior to any more library materials being checked out.
Elizabeth School District Lost Book Policy
An item checked out from your school library will be considered overdue for 30 days after the original due date. After 30 days, the item checked out will be considered lost and you will incur a replacement fee.
If an item you checked out from the library is regarded lost, you are responsible for paying a replacement fee. This replacement fee will consist of the purchase cost and the processing cost of the lost item. When the fee is paid, you will receive a receipt. Book donations are NOT accepted as payment.
If the item in question is found within 30 days of payment, please bring the item with your receipt to your school librarian. After approval from your school administration and the Elizabeth School District C1 Administration, you will be refunded the replacement fee.
Once a book has been declared lost, you become ineligible to borrow or renew materials at your school library. To reinstate your privileges, you must pay the replacement cost, or return the book with a $5.00 processing fee.
Extenuating circumstances may be reviewed on an individual basis by school.
