About the Library
The Elementary Library is open every
school day from
8:15 am to 4:15 pm.
As we have a busy schedule of classes, it would be appreciated if you could limit your visits to the following times:
*before school (8:15 am-8:40 am) *after school (3:15 pm-4:15 pm).
This will make your time in the library
more fruitful and enjoyable!
How many books can you checkout?
Note: a cycle is equal to six school days.
There is a parents' shelf in the Middle/High School Library with a great range of books about parenting. You are welcome to check these books out.
Students in grades 4 to 5 are fined for overdue books:
¥10 per book per day (so don't forget your books!)
If you are absent from school you will not be fined for late books. If you have overdue book/s , you lose the privilege of borrowing until the overdue book/s have been returned and, in the case of students in grade 4-5, all fines have been cleared.
Reminder notices are sent every month for overdue books.
Lost or Damaged Items
If you lose a book or it is damaged in some way, you will have to pay for it. Notices are sent to your parents informing them what book/s have been lost or damaged and the cost of replacing the book/s.
If a lost book is 'found' and is in good condition, the replacement cost is refunded in full.
Library MannersThe library is a special place in the school and while general school rules apply, there are a few extra 'manners' we ask every library user to follow.
Elementary Library has two full-time staff members and
one part time staff:
