Check Out and Renewal Policies

No Fines Will Accrue During Temporary Closure

We are waiving any fines that may accrue during the temporary school closure.  Since the last week was confusing for everyone, we have waived all fines that began on Monday, March 9, 2020, and will give a grace period of one week after school resumes.  Please keep your library books in a safe, dry place, and return them in good condition upon your return. Stay healthy and keep reading.  Go to or download the Sora app and read or listen to the newest and best fiction books online.  Mrs. Puccio

Library Book Check Out Procedures:

You must have a current WHS ID to check out library books. The check out period for physical library books is three weeks and two weeks for eBooks and/or Audiobooks. You may have up to three physical library books and two eBooks and/or Audiobooks at a time. Library books not turned in on time will result in a .25 fine per book / per day. EBooks and Audiobooks cannot be late because they are automatically removed from your account when your check out period is over. Library books may be renewed as long as no other students have the books on hold.

Late Fines

Late library books will be charged $0.25 per day late per book. Weekends and holidays will also accumulate fines. Pay attention to the due date that is stamped on the inside pocket card located inside the cover of the library book.

Textbook Fines

Books that are returned with damage not previously notated on the book will acquire a fine commensurate with the damages. Books not turned in by 3:00 pm on the last day of school will accrue a $5.00 fine per textbook.
