IMPORTANT-- YEAR-END BOOK RETURN for 12TH GRADE STUDENTS LEAVING AHS-- including partial Amnesty on Late fines
1. Please Note that for both staff safety and patron safety, we ask that only 12th graders and students leaving AHS (or the District) return books during the 5 days we will be open in early June (listed below)
2. Late Fines Amnesty for Students-- due to safety concerns, the Library has decided to clear minor late fines. We will ONLY collect Late Fines of $4.00 (our maximum fine, a book has been held for a year or more after due date), and will clear fines less than $4 for LATE materials (exception-- if there are fines on more than 3 items, we will ask for the late fines on the smallest items).
3. Please Note that all Missing Books currently checked out by 12th graders or departing students should be returned to a box we'll have at the Library Entrance (social distancing for you, and us) during the Hours we'll be open, posted below. This fulfills the need for Seniors to be checked out for graduation.
4. You should email LMT and CC Teacher Librarian with questions regarding the above policies.
5. HOURS we currently plan on being open are: June 2,4 & 5-- 8:30-11:30 a.m., & 12:10--3:10 p.m. Also June 9, 8:30--11:30 a.m. [Plan to be open 6 hours on June 1 was cancelled, due to vandalism and police activity at AHS]
