How long can I keep each item?
Three weeks is the standard checkout time for Anne Arundel County Public School library materials. Magazines, however, can only be checked out for a week. Reference materials are overnight loans.

Can I renew them?
Yes with the exception of high demand materials and/or items that have been requested by other students. Students must bring the item to be renewed to the library.

Overdue books
Anne Arundel County Public Schools do not charge late fees for overdue library materials, but library obligations will prevent students from fully participating in graduation activities. 

Lost or Damaged books
Sometimes things happen that are beyond an individual's control. If a library book is damaged, bring it in. The staff may be able to repair it at little or no cost to you. If an item is not returned, you will have to pay for it.

Rules & Consequences
The Northeast library media center follows the polices of the Anne Arundel County Code of Conduct as outlined in the Student Handbook.
