Lost/Damaged Books Procedures
If your child loses his/her library book, please follow these steps:
- Verify that the book is lost. Check around the house, in the car, and the classroom for the missing book.
- If the book cannot be found, have your child come to the Learning Commons to speak to Mrs. Brown or Mrs. Williams, or you may send a note or email email@example.com .We will mark the book lost in our system.
- A lost book notice will be sent home with your child with the cost to replace the book.
- Please make payment with a check made out to Baker or cash in the exact amount. Have your child bring the payment to the Learning Commons along with their notice.
- We will print a receipt for your child and clear the fine from his/her account.
If your child has an accident with their library book which makes it no longer usable, please follow these steps:
- Have your child bring the damaged book to the Learning Commons. He/she will be asked to explain the circumstances so that we may discuss how to avoid book accidents in the future.
- We will remove the book from our system and issue a damaged book notice with the cost to replace the book.
- Please make payment in the form of a check made out to Baker or cash in the exact amount. Have your child bring payment and the notice to the Learning Commons.

If you have any questions, please contact the Learning Commons staff. Please DO NOT purchase a replacement book yourself. Replacement costs do not always match the original cost of the lost/damaged book because of book formats (we purchase library bound copies).
Bear Paw on Reading Forms
We changed our red hot review forms from previous years to better align to Cobb County’s curriculum. Students are encouraged to fill out this forms after reading a book. There are two forms for grades 2-5. One form is for nonfiction books and the other form is for fiction books. Kindergarten and first grade students will only have one form.
