• Hawthorne's Library Return Policy

    library books


    If a student has an overdue book:

    Please look for the book at home and school! Remember to check under beds, in cars and backpacks!

    The family will receive an overdue letter in the mail with the title and current price of an overdue book.
    If the book cannot be found, there are three options:

      • Pay for the lost or damaged book in the school office. Put exact cash in an envelope marked with student's name, title of the lost book and the amount of cash in the envelope (ex. $5.00). No money can be taken in the library. 
      • OR Replace the old book with the same new book. 
      • OR Bring the librarian a brand-new or like-new book of similar value to replace the lost or damaged book.

     If a student has an overdue library book, they will select a book from the book bin until their overdue book situation is resolved.


    Thank you for keeping our library full of books!
