Q. What are the end of year procedures for the East Secondary Library?
2019 end of year timeline
Each year the library needs to get books back from students, teachers and parents so that we can replace lost and damaged items over the break and to reconcile patrons' accounts. We are very flexible - if a borrower needs to keep a book for any reason we will try to accommodate this need.
Please communicate with us so that we can keep note of any special circumstances. You can also renew your books online.
The timeline for the end of the 2018-19 school year is as follows:
23 April (Tuesday)
All grade 10 students will receive an email reminder to return all library books not needed for their exams. They will receive weekly email reminders to return textbooks that are no longer needed.
26 April (Friday)
All grade 12 students should have returned all library books that are not needed for their exams. They will receive weekly email reminders to return textbooks that are no longer needed for their exams.
24 May (Friday)
All grade 12 students should have returned all library books (last day of exams).
