    Circulation Policy

    Kindergarteners may check out 1 book at a time.
    First through fifth graders may check out 2 books at a time.

    We encourage Rawlings students to return their books as soon as they finish them, hopefully within 2 weeks. This allows other students to have access to these books. Books may be renewed if more time is needed.


    Students are not fined for overdue books, however, they are expected to return them on time and in the same condition they were check out in.


    Lost or damaged books must be paid for before any other materials may be borrowed from the media center.


    If you transfer from another Pinellas County school and owe a book, let us know and we can assist you in returning the book to its proper school.


    Reading Counts

    Reading Counts is a computer program that tests students' comprehension on books they select to read. Reading Counts books are located in our media center with a pink dot on its spine. Points are earned for each quiz passed. Each month students may redeem their points for prizes.
