What happens if I lose a library item?
When a patron is responsible for losing an item, only the owning library may determine if the item must be replaced or if the loss is waived. If the item is to be replaced, the transaction will take place with the owning library. In accordance with AR 735-17: Accounting for Library Materials, compensation must be made for lost or damaged library materials. Army libraries are not authorized to accept monetary compensation for lost item, only equivalent replacement materials; ie: a hardcover book must be replaced by another copy that is also a hardcover.

How can I help my children succeed in school?
