One of the concepts we emphasize in the library is respect for property.  You can encourage your child to take care of his or her library books by:

  • Keeping library books in a safe spot in your home - please help designate one
  • Washing his or her hands before reading or handling books
  • Keeping food and drink away from library books
  • Turn pages with care
  • Keep pets away from books
  • Keep books away from younger brothers and sisters who might scribble in, or tear books
  • Carry your library books in your book bag. Keep your books dry.

Lost or Damaged Book Policy

Students are responsible for the books they check out from Prairie Waters Elementary School.  If a book is lost, or damaged the student will be responsible for paying the full replacement cost of the book.  While we do not charge fines for late books, we do charge if a book is irreparably damaged or lost.  To make a payment, send cash in a sealed enveloped or make a cheque payable to PRAIRIE WATERS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

Lost books - If a lost book is found after the replacement cost has been paid, the student will be reimbursed the cost of the book after it has been returned to the library if it is in good condition and can be returned to circulation.

Damaged books - A book is considered damaged if it is returned to the library in a condition that requires extensive repair or is unable to be repaired and cannot be returned to circulation.  Examples of damaged books include but are not limited to, water damage, mold, writing on the inside of the book, torn and or missing pages, and/or damaged to the outside of the book.  Ms Hooper, library technician will determine if the book can be repaired or not.  If not, or if the repair work is extensive, the full replacement cost of the book will be charged to the student.

Overdue notices - Overdue notices and bills for lost books will be sent home periodically with your child.  Please check backpacks and agendas for overdue notices.
