Library Lending Rules and Procedures:

A library book (maximum of four) can be borrowed for a 2 week period. Once this 2 week period has ended a student can either return the library book, or extend their loan for an additional week before it must be returned. This extension can be done by logging into an OPAC in the school library, logging into "Oliver" (our library system) on the school network and extending the resource themselves, or by seeing one of our friendly staff.

 
Forest Lake SHS is proud to be a part of Queensland State Schools eBooks Digital Library for students and teachers in 2015. Encouraging students to read as often as possible, not only to learn but also for enjoyment, is a critical element of improving literacy for all students. Our eBooks Digital Library will use the popular Overdrive platform and provide students with access to hundreds of online books to support their learning and love of reading. You will require Adobe Digital Editions (free download).
 

Overdue Books:

Due to our excellent lending rates, students sometimes forget to return their books on time. Our overdue process aims to inform both students and parents to keep you in the loop. The process is as follows:

  • Email sent to student on day 1 of overdue book then daily. Students should be checking their school email daily - http://webmail.eq.edu.au
  • After 3 consecutive weeks of overdue the book will be classed as lost, and parents will be sent an invoice.
  • If the book is found and returned to the library, we will credit the invoice.

Note: If your child is certain they have returned the book to the library, please let us know and we will check the shelves for the book to see if it has been returned. If the book is still classed as missing, the invoice will remain. If at any time the book is located within the library or by the student, the amount paid for the book by the parent will be credited back to the school account.
