Question

What is the library borrowing policy for Middle School Students at Scotch?


Answer

What is the Borrowing Policy?

The Middle School library borrowing policy is designed to get and keep boys reading! Year 6, 7 and 8 students are encouraged to borrow as many books as they can manage. The emphasis is always to keep the boys reading. Although keeping track of loans is important, it is borrowing and reading that remains our top priority!

 

What Type of Books can I Read/Borrow?

Boys can borrow a combination of non-fiction books, graphic novels, magazines and fiction books. eBooks are also available for via the Middle School Library page. This is a self managed process and more detailed instructions are available here: What is Overdrive and how do I use it?

 

When Can I Borrow Books?

Boys are welcome to borrow and return books at any time during the week, they do not have to wait for their allocated library time. eBooks can also be borrowed whenever is convenient through the Middle School library page!

 

How do I Know when my Book is Overdue?

When a resource is overdue, boys will receive an email direct to your own email address. This is as we are trying to make them responsible for their own loans. If loans are very overdue Ms Grech (Middle School Teacher Librarian) will talk to boys individually in their Reading Circles class.
