Library and Policies Practices

The mission of the library/media program of the Portland Public Schools is to promote literacy and to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information, equipped with the necessary skills and desire to become lifelong learners.

CIRCULATION: Students are responsible for the items they check out from the school library. Overdue fines are not charged, but replacement fees are requested for lost or damaged materials. Families unable to pay the full amount may request to make alternative arrangements by speaking to the librarian. Overdue notices are sent to students bi-weekly. Notices regarding any items that are one month overdue are sent home.Students with library materials that are over one month overdue are not permitted to check out new materials until the overdue materials are returned to the library.
