Lost and Damaged Book Procedures

Hello from the Adams Library! Books are an essential part of what we do here at Adams Elementary. My goal is to have students excited to read books. I am very proud of our library collection.

We do not charge fines for overdue materials, but when a book is lost or damaged students need to take responsibility and replace the book. Taking responsibility is an important lesson for your child. Thanks for your support!

  • Parents can contact me via email cboswald@seattleschools.org or visit the library and talk with me if there are extenuating circumstances.
  • Lost or damaged books must be replaced with the same title and same binding. I also accept checks for the value of the book made out to Adams Elementary. Funds will be used to purchase new copies from my vendor.
  • If replacing a book is not possible, please contact me as soon as possible and we will work out a solution!
  • Checkout will stop for students who have any unpaid fines for lost or damaged books. 5th grade students will have their final report cards held if fines have not been cleared at the end of the school year.
  • Students will resume checking out books when they have paid their fine or replaced lost books.
