Donations and lost and damaged materials

Lost or Damaged Materials

Please help your child take care of their library materials. If a thorough search does not locate lost items, or if borrowed materials have been damaged, please consider the following options:

  • Do not try to repair books at home. Have your child bring the item to the library and show us the damage. We may be able to adequately repair it for continued library use.
  •  If items are irreparable or lost, they will need to be replaced in one of the following ways:
  • Pay for the cost of the item (cash or check made out to Grandhaven School). If a lost book is later found, we will be happy to refund the payment.
  • Donate a replacement book to the library of approximately equal value, interest, and condition. (Please include a note from a parent/guardian.)
  • If funds are limited, we suggest a visit to Goodwill’s book section for an appropriate but inexpensive replacement book.

Our goal is for students to develop responsible behaviors in borrowing and returning library items. Thank you for helping them to follow through in a responsible manner.

Book donations

Families are welcome to donate materials to the library, with the following considerations:

  • Please include a note with donations so we know it is with parent/guardian knowledge and permission.
  •  Books should be in good condition and appropriate for elementary-age students.
    If books are not used for the library collection, they may be offered to teachers for classroom
    libraries or placed in other locations.
