FAQs by library patrons of Archer City ISD

HOW MANY BOOKS CAN I CHECK OUT? 

Elementary students are allowed two AR books and one regular book; extra books can be checked out for special projects or UIL. Middle school students are encouraged to have two AR books and are allowed to check out other books for pleasure or research. High school students can check out as many as ten if needed for research. 

HOW LONG CAN I KEEP MY BOOKS?

Books are kept for two weeks and can be rechecked for another two- week period.                              

WILL I HAVE A FINE IF MY BOOKS ARE LATE? 

We give you a two- week grace period if your books are late; then, it is five cents a day with weekends and holidays not charged. Arrangements can be made with students with financial hardships to work in the library to pay off fines. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I PAY FOR A BOOK AND LATER FIND IT? WILL I GET MY MONEY BACK?

Probably not! We will try to refund money if a replacement copy has not been ordered; if it has been over two weeks, you will probably not get a refund. We encourage students to look "really hard" for lost books because some books are out of print and/or the price has skyrocketed since the original purchase of the book. We also have to process the new book, which may take thirty minutes to an hour to get it shelf-ready. Many libraries charge an additional fee for processing replacement books.

WHY DOES MY PICTURE SHOW UP ON THE CHECKOUT SCREEN IN THE LIBRARY?

It is visual help when checking out a book by making sure that we have matched the patron number with the student. Pictures in our library system also help us to learn the students' names.
