Checkout Guidelines

Checkout: Students will be able to checkout 1 book weekly during library class. Students will not be allowed to checkout a new book if previously checked out books are not returned. 

Overdue Fines: Mark Twain library does not charge fines for overdue books.

Lost Books: If a book is lost, a replacement fine will be added to your student's account and your student will not be allowed to checkout until the fine is paid. If the lost book is returned in good condition within one year after the replacement fine is paid, we will refund the fine to you. 

Damaged Books: If a book is returned with damage that cannot be repaired, a replacement fine will be charged and your student will not be able to check out until the fine is paid.
