Books are checked out for a 2-week period, except for project books. Students may return and exchange books every day from 8:30-8:45. A book may be renewed if it is not on reserve for someone else. If there is a waiting list, students will be allowed one renewal only. We do not charge fines for late books. However, we will send out Overdue Notices periodically as a reminder to return late books. If books are overdue for over one month, borrowing privileges may be suspended. Books that are lost or damaged must be paid for. Borrowing privileges will be suspended at the start of the new school year if fines have not been paid, even if you are changing schools.
Did you know that you can access the library catalog from home? Students have full access to the catalog simply by clicking on Estabrook School catalog the left or from the Quick Links on the main Estabrook School page. 4th and 5th grade students can reserve books from home, and all students can make a list of books to look for in the library the next day. Try it!
