Library Information and Policies
About Our Library
The library supports the Loudoun County Public School curriculum by providing books, media and instruction to all students and faculty members. The Waxpool Library is open from 7:55am-3:00pm every school day. All classes are scheduled for one day per week for 30 minutes. The library is opened all day for individual student checkout and small group work.
Students in Kindergarten check out one library book each week. Grades 1-3, check out two library books each week. Students in grades 4-5, check out three library books each week. When a student has a report or project, additional library books can be checked out. Students are always welcome to come down to the library during the school day, with thier teachers permission to check out more books. Library books should be returned or renewed at each library class. Students must remember to return library books before additional library books can be checked out. Library is more fun that way!
Lost Book Policy
In order to ensure that all students are able to get the most out of the library, books must be returned on time. After a book has been overdue for 30 days or more, a notice will be sent home. If you can locate the book and return it, the fine will be deleted. Please remember to look carefully in bedrooms, under the bed, on bookshelves, in the car, at daycare lost and founds, and so on. Books show up in very random places! If these books are determined to be lost or destroyed, a fine must be paid for the cost to replace the book. Please reach out to Ms. Meltser for information on the amount for any certain book.
There are two methods for paying the fine to replace the book:
- To pay online: Visit the homepage of the Waxpool website (lcps.org/Waxpool) and scroll down to the Online School Payment and select Lost Library Book. Type in the total amount due and follow the steps listed.
- To pay via check: Write a check made out to Waxpool Elementary School, for the listed amount and send it to school with your child. Please put Library in the memo spot.
If there are any questions at all, feel there is an error, or other arrangements need to be made, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
