Note About Missing Books From The 2019-2020 School Year
We understand that things are not normal right now. If you are unable to find your Media Center Books, do not worry. Additionally, if books have been lost during this time of Digital Learning, you will not be charged with lost book fines. If you find Media Center books over the summer, please bring them to school with you to Dyer when the new school year begins.
All books and magazines are checked out for two weeks. However, students may return books early so that they can check out new books and magazines.
If a student has an overdue book or a fine for a lost/damaged book, the books must be returned or the fines must be paid before a student may check out another book.
- One book at a time
- One book at a time at the beginning of the year
- Two books beginning in January
Second, Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grade

Payment for a lost book will be refunded if the book is returned in good condition on or before the last day of school.
