Ford Middle School students may check out two books at a time. The book may be kept for two weeks, and students can renew a book up to five times. Students are encouraged to turn the books in to the library whenever they finish them to avoid a late charge of ten cents per day. The students have two grace days for each book that the students check out. They do not have to wait until the due date before turning in a book. As they finish reading a book, the books may be returned to the book drop before or after school or in between classes.
Students may come to the library with permission from a classroom teacher. With teacher permission, students may stay and check out a new book.
Time does not permit students to check books out between classes but a book can be returned to the book drop.
Students will be reading a variety of novels as assigned by their reading and English teacher. These books will be checked out through the library. A student may have two library books and English and reading novels checked out at the same time. The English and reading novels will be checked out for a specified length of time set by the teachers.
