In order to check out textbooks or library books, students are required to show a current school I.D. No books will be issued without it.
Mira Costa High School uses a computerized system to track the circulation of textbooks. All textbooks have an individual barcode, so that each textbook can be tracked. Textbooks are checked out to each individual student and remain attached to the student’s account until the books are returned to the library. Students are responsible for the copy checked out to them.
Fines: Lost book = replacement cost Barcode damage = $5 Water damage = replacement cost Cover/binding damage = $20 Writing/highlighting = 20% of replacement cost Note: Any books not returned on the last day of a semester course or year course will be marked as lost and a fine equal to the replacement cost will be assessed.
Additional textbooks will not be issued if a student has textbook or library fines. Fines must be cleared before additional books will be checked out to a student. Fines can also impact registration and the ability to participate in senior activities.
Textbook Tips: Cover your books. This will cut down on their wear. Keep your books dry. Do not write on, tear or turn down pages. Check your books immediately for: missing/torn pages water damage, spine damage If above are not noted by the librarian within 2 weeks of checkout, you may be charged according to the above fine schedule.
