Welcome to the Vidalia Lower Library!

Library Policies

Each class visits the library weekly. First and Second Graders are allowed to check out library books for a period of one week if their parent signs a permission slip for them to do so.  During library classes, students will participate in a variety of activities designed to excite them about reading including story-time, songs, poetry, choral readings, library skills lessons, writing, and art projects that are age appropriate. 


Library Book Check-out Policies

Students may check-out library books for one week. Only one book at a time may be borrowed from the VLE library.

Students are responsible for taking care of their library book. Students should transport their book from school to home in a backpack.  Books should not be taken out on the bus. Books should be kept clean and dry and safe from younger siblings and family pets.
  • If a book becomes lost or damaged, the librarian will assess fees to cover the damage or replacement cost of the book. 
  • If a student withdraws, the library book must be returned before records will be released.
No book check-out for the weeks prior to Thanksgiving break, Christmas break, and Spring break.
Annual Library Book Fair- Scheduled for the last week of September 2019!
The VLE Library sponsors a Scholastic Book Fair once each year as a fund-raising event for library materials and supplies. Book Fair dates are September 19-27, 2019. Students will shop during their assigned library class time.  Any money that is sent with students should be placed in a sealed envelope with the child’s name, teacher’s name, the dollar amount, and the purpose for the money written on the outside of the envelope.  Parents and other visitors may shop at the Book Fair during school hours 8:00-:2:30.  Grandparents Day is always a big part of book fair week at Vidalia Lower.  This year's Grandparents Day at the Book Fair will be September 27th.  Each grade level will have a different time to shop with their grandparents.  If grandparents are unable to attend on the 27th, they may come at any time during book fair week.  During the book fair, the library can only accept cash or checks made out to Vidalia Lower Elementary.  We cannot accept debit or credit cards.

Book fair flyers and shopping schedule will be sent home the week prior to the book fair and posted on the school website.

Please remember that children are great copy-cats.  When they see their parents and others they love reading and treating books with respect, they will do the same. Teaching a child to love books is to give a gift that will never be outgrown, torn, broken or lost.  The love of reading is a priceless gift.
