What is the Librarian Reading?

Buchser Middle School Library

Late Fees and FInes

The library will take off all book fines and late fees when school returns. Please find a safe place to keep any Buchser books you have. In the meantime, it would help us if you could renew your books on your account using the Library Catalog. Use the link under Check your library account. You can do this by going to the login at the top, go to checkouts and renew your books. Otherwise, enjoy some extra time reading using Sora or eBooks online from the public library.
