Overdue Books and Lost Materials

We strive to make sure that all students have access to good books and that students are taught how to take care of their library books. Students are reminded that they are responsible for all materials checked out on their Elton Hills library account.

Overdue notices are provided to all students on a monthly basis. Included on the overdue notice is the cost of replacement for the lost book. Students can also check their due dates by logging in to their account on the Elton Hills Catalog page.Find it here .

If you have questions about your child's overdues, please call Anne Marie Griffin or Kate Jirik in the Elton Hills Media Center at 328.3199 during school hours.

Moving to a new School?

If you move within the Rochester School District, library materials may be turned in to any ISD 535 school and they will be returned to the old school.

If you move out of the ISD 535 School District, please make every effort to return the book either by mail or returning it to your local public library for return to our school.

Thank you in advance for helping to keep our library books circulating!
