Tips for Finding Lost Library Books

If your child misplaces their school library book, don’t panic! Most items turn up eventually, but we need the family’s help to get the items back. Please follow these steps.

Step 1: Email me and the classroom teacher to let us know that you are looking for the item. My email address is

Step 2: Search in these common hiding places. It may also be helpful to search the Internet for a picture of the book cover so you know what it looks like.

  • In the student’s desk, under all of the other stuff
  • On the classroom library shelf (look for the library spine labels on our copy)
  • In the bookshelves at home (look for the library spine labels on our copy)
  • At the public library (If you return a Park Village book to the public library, they don’t inform or return it to us. Please stop by the public library and ask them if they have it.)
  • Under the bed or couch
  • Between a bed and the wall
  • In the student’s closet
  • At a friend or relative’s house
  • In the car
  • In another backpack or bag
  • At ESS (ask the ESS staff to search)

If you have searched diligently and the item is not found, parents are responsible for paying the replacement cost. I will email a bill if books items have been overdue for 21 days or more. Please send cash or a check made out to “PVES” for the amount shown. Do not try to replace the book yourself. No money is owed if you find and return the book in good condition. If you find a lost book after paying for it, you child can either keep it, or return it to school. Refunds are given if the book if found during the same school year.

Thank you! – Mrs. Fleming, Park Village Librarian
