Textbook Collection Information and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Book Return

Our library has a limited schedule over the summer. However, you may still return textbooks and library books at the DSHS library entryway on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., beginning on Wednesday, June 17, and extending through Friday, August 14. This is an "unattended drop off" as staff will not be checking in materials until a later time. Please place books in a paper or plastic shopping bag with the student’s name and student ID number clearly marked on the bag. Then place the bag on the table inside the entryway to the DSHS library.

If you have questions or concerns regarding textbooks, or fines for missing or damaged items, please send an email message to dshslibrary@djusd.net or call the library at (530) 757-5400 extension 181.  Thank you.


What if I missed my Textbook Collection time? (Or I find a missing book later?)
You may now return items to the "unattended drop off" at the entryway to the Craig Armstrong Library on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 8:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Please place items in a plastic or paper shopping bag, labeled with the student's name and ID number, and set the bag on the table in the entryway to the DSHS library

How do I pay for fines?
We do not assess fines for items merely overdue. Fines are assessed for missing or damaged items only.

Fines may be paid online at the
Blue Devil Online Store. Select "Library" under "Product Categories", click on the lost & damaged books image and enter the amount of the fine(s), the student's name and the student's ID number. The fine amount field is labeled "Donation Amount." Yes, we know it's not a "donation," but we can't change the name of the field.

Due to COVID protocols, we are currently unable to accept cash payments.
Fines may also be paid by check. Please include the student ID number in the memo line, and make the check payable to
Davis Senior High School. Mail the check to:

Davis Senior High School

attn: Textbook Room

315 W 14th Street

Davis, CA 95616

We will not collect payment for fines during the textbook collection event.

How do I challenge a fine?
Send an email message to dshslibrary@djsud.net with the details and circumstances of the fine. Please include the student's name and ID number. The fine may remain, be reduced, or be waived, depending upon our investigation.

I lost a book--how much does it cost/can I buy a replacement?
If you know the book in question is indeed lost, or damaged beyond repair, please contact dshslibrary@djusd.net for payment or replacement options. Be sure to include details from the "Fine and Overdue Message" in your inquiry.

What if I have other questions?
Please contact the library staff at dshslibrary@djusd.net. This email address will be monitored all summer. Or you may leave a phone message at the library desk, (530) 757-5400 extension 181.
