Meadow View Elementary
Library Book Check-out Policy 2018-19
Welcome to the Meadow View Elementary Library! We are so excited that your student is a Meadow View Trojan. We want Library time to be fun and we want your student to develop a love for reading. During this school year, your student may be checking out books for the very first time and that is so exciting for them! Checking out books is a privilege and with privilege comes responsibility. Checking out books is a great way to teach your student to be responsible. Below are the library policies and a form to be signed by a parent or guardian before your student can begin checking out books from the library.
Parents/Guardians: Please read this carefully and sign only if you agree to the policies. Your child can begin checking out when the form is returned.

throughout the school year. This will let you know if your child has a book that is overdue

*Books damaged beyond repair must be paid for or privileges to check out will be lost.
*Damaged books are to be cleaned and/or repaired only by the librarian. Please do not do this at home.

books will not be sent out, but must be picked up by parents from the secretary’s office.
*If you move before you have a chance to return a book, please either return the book to our
school yourself, or if you are another Hardin County School, return it to the new school
