Policies

Batesville High School Library Media Center

Checking Out Materials:

•Materials may be checked out at the circulation desk in the media center. Books are circulated for two weeks.  Magazines are checked out for one week.
•Due dates vary by the type of material and it is your responsibility to see that all materials borrowed from the media center are returned by the due date.
•Materials may be renewed if no one else is waiting to use the same material.

Lost or Damaged Material:
•You are responsible for all material checked out in your name.
•If you think you have lost the material, report the loss to the library media center as soon as possible.
•When materials are lost or damaged you will be charged the retail cost of the materials or the cost of repair.  Damaged material paid for remains the property of Batesville High School Library Media Center.
•If the lost material is later found and returned in good condition to the media center a refund will be issued.

Overdue Policy:
•The purpose of this policy is to help students return materials to the media center in a timely manner.
•The Batesville High School Library Media Center does not charge fines for overdue materials. The interest is in having the materials returned for others to use rather than punishment of a student.

When materials students have checked out have not been returned or renewed by the due date, the following will occur:
1.An overdue notice is sent to students with materials overdue from one (1) to seven (7) days via My Big Campus.
2.The second contact is an overdue notice given to students with materials overdue eight (8) or more days via My Big Campus.
3.If a third contact is needed, another overdue notice is generated and delivered via My Big Campus.  Along with this notice, the student will be referred to Mr. Allen for Friday School.  Because our intent is to retrieve library materials and not to punish student, if the student returns the materials before Friday, the Friday School will be canceled.
