Media Center Procedures
Checking Out Books
Students are able to check out a number of books based on their grade level:
  • Kindergarten: One book
  • 1st - 2nd grades: Two library books plus one dot book
  • 3rd - 5th grades: Up to three books

At Palos East we strive to teach our students to select their books independently.  If you notice your child is bringing home materials at an inappropriately high or low level of difficulty, please discuss this with your child first.  

Loan Period
  • Kindergarten - 5th Grade: Students may keep items for one week

If students forget their library books on their scheduled media day, they should return them the following school day.

All students may renew their books as long as there are no holds on the book. They should notify Mrs. Curran or Mrs. Gamauf to renew their books. They do not have the bring the books into the library. 

We do not charge fines for overdue books; however, students must return an overdue book before an additional book may be checked out. 

Lost or Damaged Books
Students who lose or damage books beyond repair will be charged the replacement cost of the book. Parents may give permission for their children to check out more books while lost books are being looked for by contacting Mrs. Curran. Bills for a lost or damaged books will be sent home upon request or at the end of each quarter.
