BORROWING


Each student has a Library ID card which must be used when borrowing from the Library. A temporary Library card can be collected from the Library. A 'credit card' style ID card will be available the following year.

The OLMC Library allows each student to borrow a maximum of 4 books - 2 Fiction and 2 Non-fiction. Non-fiction books are loaned for 1 week and Fiction for 2 weeks. Check the return by date stamped inside the book. Books can be renewed if they are required for longer. Reservations can be made for books that are out on loan. Some books are only available as 'Overnight loans' and must be returned the next day before Homeroom - this is done to be fair to all students when an assessment task is being prepared.

School emails should be checked regularly as reminders are sent out re overdue or reserved books and other items of interest to students.


OLIVER
