Your student ID number is your library check out number.  You will receive a student ID card; use it in the library!
You may check out books ONLY on your own number/card.  DO NOT allow anyone else to check out books on your number. You are held responsible for all books/materials checked out on your ID number regardless of who has them.
Books are checked out for 10 school days.  PLEASE return them on time as a courtesy to other students.  If you do not return the book I WILL start bugging you about it!
