Tom Cox Library Policies

Check Out: Students come each week to the library with their Language Arts class.  At this time they are encouraged to check out two books- your teacher may have specific genres they need you to read, otherwise read what you enjoy. Students will be encouraged to keep a rotation of two books checked out throughout the year. 

Holds: Students may place a hold on a book by logging onto Follett Shelf in the Catalog (preferred method) or by asking Mrs. Houck at the checkout counter.

Renew Book: Not finished reading a book and you need to renew (check out again)?
Go to the Destiny Discover (log into the library catalog) and do it there.  If there is not a hold on the book, you will be able to place the hold online. Or, bring the book to the library.  If it is not on hold for another student you may check it out again. If it is not on hold for another student, you may re-check a book one time before having to turn it back in.

Overdue Books: Students my check out new books only when all library books are current.  Students with over due books to Tom Cox, must turn them in, to make their account currant and then they may resume checkout privileges.  Fines from other schools will not prevent students from starting "fresh" at Tom Cox, however, the issue will need to be resolved.  Late notices will be given out periodically to alert students to the need to clear their record.
