What are the end of year procedures for the Primary Library at East?

Each year there is a timeline around book returns. What is the timeline for 2019?


Each year the library needs to get books back from teachers, students and parents to enable us to replace lost and damaged items over the break and to reconcile patrons' accounts. Please remember that 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.


For information on replacing lost & damaged books, or to speak to the library staff visit ask.uwcsea.edu.sg


The timeline for the end of the 2018-19 school year is as follows:


31 May (Friday)

  • Student leavers will be encouraged to only have one book at a time on loan for the next week.
  • Teacher and Parent leavers should begin returning their unwanted books.



Students and teachers can check what they have on loan by going to catalog.uwcsea.edu.sg and selecting EAST PRIMARY LIBRARY.
