Library Policies


BOOK CIRCULATION • Students may check out up to three books at a time. • A Ridley High School ID card must be presented to check out library materials. • Fiction, nonfiction, audiobooks, magazines, and Kindles circulate for three weeks. • Books may be renewed unless another student has placed a hold on the item. OVERDUE FINES • Students will receive an overdue notice in Homeroom when the book is one week overdue. • Students will receive a 2nd overdue notice when the book is two weeks overdue. • Ridley High School Library does not charge students or staff any overdue fines. • Student borrowing privileges will be suspended until all overdue materials are returned to the library and/or lost book replacement costs have been paid. IF YOU LOSE OR DAMAGE A BOOK: When you check out library materials, you take responsibility for them. Therefore, if you lose or damage a book, audiobook, or Kindle you must pay the full cost so that a replacement may be purchased. If you eventually locate the book, bring it back to the library and we will refund your money.
