Fines

A fine of 10¢ a day will be assessed for every day that a library book is late. Please note that all library books are due two weeks from the date that they are checked out.  Students may check the due dates of their books at any time by logging in to Destiny Quest (the LJH Library Catalog) and clicking on the "My Info" tab.

Damaged Books

When a book is returned damaged beyond repair, the replacement cost of the book will be charged. Damage to library materials includes but is not limited to: spills from food, drink or other substances, damage to cover or spine, cutting or tearing pages, writing with pencil, pen, markers, etc.

Lost Books

Once a book is 30 days past due, students will be charged for the replacement cost of the book. If the book is found and returned in good condition (during the school year), the amount paid (minus applicable late fees) will be refunded.

Payment

Cash or personal checks are acceptable forms of payment for fines or to cover the replacement cost of damaged or lost books.  Please make personal checks out to Lamar JH Library.

Returning Books

All books should be returned in the library book drop slot, which is located at the end of the circulation desk.  If the library is closed, students should turn their library books in to Mrs. Resendez in the front office (across from the library).  It is the student's responsibility to return library books on or before the due date.
