Check Out and Book Care


Check Out & Book Care

Check Out Policy

Students and teachers are encouraged to check out books from our Library.

Kindergarten checks out one book each week and usually returns the book the following week.  First through fifth grade students check out two books and can have them for two weeks but typically students are finished before then and check out prior to the two week due date.  Books are late or overdue if they have not been turned in within two weeks.


Caring for Library Books

Here are some tips on caring for your library materials:

  • Keep food, drinks, babies, and pets away from your books.
  • Remember to wash your hands before reading a book.
  • Treat your books gently.
  • Report any book damage to the library staff so they may fix the book properly.
  • Use a bookmark for saving your place in a book. Do not fold the corners of the page or use a pencil to save your place.
  • Do not turn a book down on its "face" with the pages open.
  • Keep your books dry at all times. Carry water bottles in a separate bag, far away from your books. On rainy days, be sure to put your books in a backpack and make sure your backpack stays dry and off the ground.


Lost or Damaged Library Resources

Occasionally, Daughtry Library resources are lost or damaged and must be replaced. Students and their families are responsible for replacing lost or damaged library resources at replacement cost. Ms. Solomon will notify all students who have problems with lost or damaged library resources.

Ms. Solomon will routinely send home overdue notices via email or paper. Fines for lost books are issued at each report card period. Unpaid fines will be added to a student's permanent school record at the close of each school year.

Here are some options for replacement:

  • Return the item undamaged (best option).
  • Replace the item with an exact copy of the lost or damaged item.
  • Pay for the item at replacement cost.

Destiny Catalog



This link will allow users to browse the Daughtry Elementary Media Center Catalog.  Teachers can look for resources to supplement lessons and parents/students can look for books of interest. 

Please note that Media Center Nooks/Laptops are not for individual check-out.  (Classroom teachers can check them out as a set.)

Books that have an "R" location on the spine are not for individual check-out. (These are usually classroom sets)

Not all books will be marked as Reading Counts Books in Destiny. Students will have to double check the book physically located on the shelf.
