    Lost or Damaged Books

    Students must pay $15 to replace a lost library book that is hardcover and $5 to replace a paperback. 
    Students that return damaged books will be charged an amount depending on the type of damage. ​

  •  Circulation 

    Harmony students in Kindergarten and first grade can check out one book.  Students in second through fifth grades can check out two books. We also recently started circulating magazines to fourth and fifth grade students.  All materials can be borrowed for two weeks.

    We encourage students to read widely, choosing books that they are excited about. We are happy to provide guidance and assistance to every reader so they can find their next favorite book.

    The media center belongs to all of us. For that reason, we take care of and return books on time so that others in our reading community can enjoy them. If a book is lost or damaged beyond repair, we ask that, in line with GCPS policy, you help us replace it through a nominal fee.  Lost and damaged book fees can be paid through MyPaymentsPlus.
