Checking Out Books
K-Grade 2 - Students may check out one book weekly. A book can be renewed for one additional week.
Grades 3 - 8 - Students may check out two books out for 15 school days, and may renew for an additional 15 days.
NOTE: If a student has an overdue book, this overdue book must be returned BEFORE the student can check out another book from the Media Center.
Overdue notices are emailed to parents every Tuesday.
If the student does not return the book by the following Tuesday, parents will receive a second notice.
The third notice is sent via the blue folders, or mailed to the parents.
The media center will renew the book and encourage the student and parents to continue looking for the book. After 6 weeks, a notice with a bill will be sent.
When a student checks out a book from the Media Center, it becomes his/her responsibility to return the book to the Media Center. If a book is lost, the student will receive a bill for the replacement cost of the book.
To apply for a library card in any of the Burlington County Libraries, a parent must have a photo ID when applying for a BLINC Library Card.
