I did let a dcg take a book home over the weekend once. When they came back on Monday they forgot the book and didn't even read it over the weekend. I have thought about letting books get checked out, but I don't trust the kids to take them home & return it in good condition. I have a feeling it would get tossed aside more than read. If I had a family that had very limited access to books, then I'd definitely rethink that and probably let one book go home at a time, but only if the parents allowed it.

If you do a library check out, definitely limited the number of books and make sure the policies are spelled out in your handbook. I like the idea of a flat replacement fee. Not only does the book need to get replaced, but think of the time it'll take you to drive around to get it or find it online.
