    Returning Books

    Students should return books to the CES Library, or to classroom “return” boxes. Students may renew materials they need for longer than two weeks. They may renew items as well. This helps students keep track of the materials they borrow. A student may check out library materials as long as he or she doesn’t have any overdue (or lost) items. If the student has an overdue item, it’s a simple matter of returning it or renewing it in order to check out additional items. There are no fines for overdue books; however, students are responsible and must replace lost or damaged materials.

    Automatic overdue emails will be sent at the end of each month. Please contact Mrs. Lawrence directly with any questions.
