Q: My student has damaged or lost his/her book. What do we do?
A: Book replacement can vary from $10 to $250, depending on the book. Call the library at ext. 2060 to find out the price. Per Education Code 48904(a), students are responsible for their books and the cost. Damage charges can vary all the way up to full cost depending on what damage occurred. We do offer a payment plan where students can put approximately 20% down, then pay at least $5.00 per month after that. If a book is turned in within a year, the student receives his/her money back.
Q: If my student lost his/her book, can I buy a replacement online?
