ESC Library Rules: Library Rules

Open Hours

Phase II Library

Every school day
7:30am - 4:‚Äč00pm

Overdue and Lost books

Students are expected to return books on time. The Library doesn’t charge students for overdue books. For overdue items, overdue notices will be sent by Oliver every week for 3 weeks. If the item has not been returned by the end of this period of 4 weeks it will be considered lost and a payment notice will be issued.

If you lost a book, you can either buy another identical copy and return it to the library or ask the librarian for the price of the book when the library purchased it. You will be charged for an extra NT$50 for processing materials.

Library iPads

10 iPads are available in the Phase 2 library for research and homework. Students are welcome to borrow the iPad to search the library OPAC or access the subscription databases in the library.


Account Deletion

Leavers whose library accounts are clear will be deleted from the library system when the leaver form is signed by the library staff or at the end of the school year (end of June). 

Leavers who still have library materials or textbooks on their accounts will be kept for one year in the system. Resources will be marked as lost after one year and accounts will be deleted.

Borrowing and Renewing items

Books, back issue magazines, DVDs or audio books– in fact, most of the resources in the library- are available for loan.

Number of items

Secondary students: 5 books
High School students: 7 books
Teachers and Staff: Unlimited!

Loan Period:

2 weeks for secondary students
3 weeks for high school students



Please note that there is a special loan policy for DVDs. Students are allowed to borrow DVD at a time for week. 


If you haven’t finished your book when it is due, you can renew it for another 2 or 3 weeks as long as no other reader has requested it.

You can renew your items using Oliver before the due date. If you have already renewed it once or the item is overdue, you need to bring your book back to the librarian to get it renewed.
