All books due back next Thursday, May 20th!

Dear Families,
It's hard to believe that the end of the school year is right around the corner! Here is some information about library books to help clear up any confusion at this busy time of year.

All items are due back by the end of the school day on Thursday, May 20th.

This week you should have received an email about any overdue materials. Next week you will receive an email from the library showing all checked out items.

Please note:

Some returned items may be in a classroom bin, so they will show up in the library software as still checked out. Please do not worry; they will get back to the library by the end of the day on the 20th! There is no need to contact us about these items. Do ask your child to check his or her backpack!

Overdue fines of $3 per item will be assessed on all materials returned after May 20th (remember, there is no school on Friday the 21st).

The cost of the item plus a $3 processing fee will be assessed on all lost or damaged items. Please let us know (library at ows dot org) if an item is missing or damaged.

Beginning Monday, May 24th, library materials should be returned to the main office, NOT to the classroom or the library.

There is an extended due date for items for school projects that are still in progress. If we accidentally bill you for one of these books, please let us know. We will do our best to catch them but are dealing with hundreds of students and all their materials so some may slip through the cracks.

NB: 5th graders have extended deadlines due to their class trip and book report for Ms. Russell. They may return regular library materials on Monday, May 24th and book report books on Wednesday, June 2nd.

Thank you!
Ms. Simeon & Mrs. Kenmochi
