Jenks West Intermediate Media Policies

Jenks West Intermediate Circulation Policies

 

Purpose: 

Jenks West Intermediate Media Center developed circulation guidelines and procedures to ensure fair access to information for all patrons.

 

Number of Items:

  • Students may borrow two items at a time, only one of which can be a Playaway. 
  • Teachers may request that students check out a specific item for class (example: book for a book club, book for science research).  In these cases, students may have three items at a time (2 student choice, 1 teacher request).
  • There is no limit to the number of items that a teacher may check out.

 

Loan periods:

  • Students may borrow items for two weeks.  Due dates are stamped on the inside of the book at check-out.  Due dates are always on a day that school is in session, so occasionally; a student may have a book for a bit longer than two weeks.
  • Novel Set books (book club books) check out for a six week period.  
  • Reference materials may not be checked out by students, but teachers may check them out for classroom use at the discretion of the media staff.
  • Teachers may keep items as long as needed for a class project, keeping in mind that other classes likely need access to the materials in a timely manner.

 

Holds:

  • Mrs. McCoin and Ms. Wilburn are happy to put a book on hold for you, or you can log in to Destiny and place the hold yourself.  You will receive an email when your hold is ready. 
  • A student may have two items on hold at a time.
  • A hold remains on the hold shelf for 7 days.  After that, the hold expires and the book is reshelved.  Be sure to check your school Gmail daily for hold notices.  

 

Renewals:

  • Students may renew a book twice if it is not on hold by another student.  If there is a hold on the book, it cannot be renewed.

 

Overdue Items:

  • Overdue notices are sent to students each Wednesday.
  • Students will not be allowed to check out additional items until overdue items are returned.
  • A letter will be sent to the parents of students that have a book overdue more than a month.
  • Overdue fines are not charged.

 

Lost/Damaged Items:

  • Students are expected to pay for the replacement of lost or damaged books or to replace the book itself.
  • Students will not be allowed to check out additional materials until they have made restitution for missing or damaged items.
  • At the discretion of the librarian, a payment plan can be established.
