Textbook News

Email notices went out to all students Friday, December 9, with a list of all books currently checked out.

DO NOT RETURN ALL OF YOUR BOOKS TO THE LIBRARY!

You do need to return textbooks for single semester courses, but KEEP any textbooks you still need for Spring semester.

Single semester course books to return:

Government, Economics, AP Micro Economics (unless you need the book to study for the AP test), Health, Medical Terminology, First Aid, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, Mythology, Probability & Statistics, Trigonometry, Calculus D, & Accelerated Precalculus (not regular PreCalc).

You also need to return any textbooks from classes you are dropping after first semester.

 

Library book due dates vary; check the date due slip in the book. If you'd like to read a library book over break, just come in and check one out! Or ask us to renew the book you already have so you can read it over break.

 

Fines for lost and damaged books are due by the end of the semester, Friday December 16. Students who do not pay their fines will go on the fines list and not be able to participate in school activities until they clear. Fines do NOT prevent students from checking out textbooks.

 

How to pay a fine online - print out your receipt and bring the receipt with you to the library.

 

QUESTIONS? Call us at 951-695-4200 x130.

$$$ Read these Money-saving Textbook Tips $$$

1. Check all of your books carefully -- you have two weeks to report any damages, such as writing, torn pages, or food or drink spills.

2. Keep a record of your textbook barcodes in your notebook, or take a picture of them on a cell phone.

3. Don't leave books in a classroom, even if the teacher offers a cupboard! If the book gets mixed up with another student's, is damaged, lost or stolen you are still responsible to pay for it.

4. Cover your textbooks to keep them clean; please don't tape covers to the actual book.

5. Avoid water damage, water turns to mold! Don't put drinks in a backpack with books, and put books in a plastic bag if you need to carry them to school on a rainy day.

6. Always return your book personally to the library counter so that we can be sure the book you are returning is the same one you borrowed.
