Library Policies

  1. If you decide you don't like a book or your parents are not comfortable with your book choice, feel free to return it and choose another one that you can enjoy! We have thousands of books for a wide range of ages, interests, and experiences, choose what YOU will enjoy.

  2. When you come to the library you use hand sanitizer before browsing the book shelves.

  3. One to four Library Books may be checked out for 2 weeks at a time. Returned books will be quarantined for 24 hours before being checked in and then available.

  4. If a book you want is already checked out, you may place it on HOLD to get in the queue (this is a "pending hold" - pending the return of the book).

  5. You are responsible to return your books on time or request a one-time renewal by bringing your book(s) into the library for Ms. Hall or Mrs. Alumbaugh to renew.

  6. Handle all books gently and keep in a safe, clean and dry place, so others may enjoy them after you return them.

  7. Email Ms. Hall if you have any questions, observations or suggestions. jhall@rockingham.k12.va.us

  8. Read, Read, Read.... because the more you read, the better you read, and the more fun it is to read!
