Media Center Policies

The Staff and Students at Folwell Elementary School believe in the Power of Reading!

All Folwell students are invited to visit their media center often, check out books and read!

Check out
-The check-out period is about two weeks for students.
-Students may renew books at any time provided there are no holds on the title.
-Students do not have to keep their books for the entire loan period.
-Library books can be returned to the library tub in the classroom or the book-return cart in the media center.

-Books can be exchanged and returned at any time that the media center is open for business.
-Unlimited renewals are allowed unless there are requests for a popular title.

How Many Books Can I Check Out?
Kindergarten and 1st Grade, 2 books
2nd and 3rd Grade, 3 books
4th and 5th Grade, 4 books
Students are welcome to check out more books if they need them for classroom projects.  

Overdue Books and Lost Materials
All Folwell students have both the right to access our great collection AND the responsibility to return library materials on time and in good shape.

Returning Library Books
-Please return your library books on time.
-Overdue notices are provided for all students on a monthly basis.
-There are no fines for overdue books
-Students will be charged the cost of the book if it is damaged beyond repair or lost.

Library staff has the option of waiving or reducing charges if they determine that extenuating circumstances so warrant.

Are You Moving?
Please return your library books!
If you move to another school within the Rochester Public School District, you can return your library books to the new school and they will ship them back to us at Folwell.
