There are important and critical changes concerning the lending of items coming to the Teacher Resource Centre for the 2015/2016 school year. These changes will have a significant effect on all our patrons, and it is important that everyone who borrows from us knows what is changing.  Please click the link above for the complete list.

Changes to Courier
• This coming school year will feature some significant changes to the courier schedule.
• We expect there to be a period of adjustment for everyone as we become accustomed to this new schedule.
• Please consult with your office manager as to when your specific courier pick up/drop off day is now.
• Whenever possible, book items at least a week in advance. When booking on short notice, we recommend you pick the item up in person.
• Generally: north of Hwy 7 will be on Tuesdays; immediately north and west of the city will be on Wednesdays; the perimeter and very core of the city will be on Thursdays; and the rest on Fridays.
• The Western Region Schedule (beyond Napanee) will be updated when we have that information.

Changes to Lending Period
• Media items will have a lending period of two weeks.
• All other items will have a lending period of four weeks.
• Each item can be renewed three times, so long as another teacher has not requested the item, in which case, we will send you a notification.
• Make the renewal either online or by calling us before your due date.

• Our system cannot send warnings of approaching due dates.
• We suggest that you regularly check the status of your items in your online profile on our website.
• We send once-a-month overdue notifications, which remind you which books need to be sent back.
• We send weekly notifications of which items have been requested by other users.
• We do not charge overdue fines to employees of the Limestone or Algonquin Lakeshore Boards.

The management and staff of the Teacher Resource Centre look forward to another school year of cooperation and teaching excellence with you, our valued patrons and partners.
