Overdue Notices

Last term overdue notices were sent home. Many books have found their way back to the library, however there are still a number of books outstanding, many of these are from last year.

Once again new notices will be going home with this newsletter, can you please check with your child if they have any books overdue. Sometimes students can be embarrassed to return a late book, fearing they will get in trouble. This is not the case, so to help with this, THIS WEEK, until Friday afternoon, we will be holding a ‘BOOK AMNESTY’.

Simply help your child look for any library books that they may have at home (in the bookcase, under the bed, in the car) and return them during this week.

The library is open every day, and before and after school to return books.

The first class with absolutely no books outstanding will receive a class surprise.

If you have any questions, please come in and see Janine in the Library.

HAPPY BOOK HUNTING…
