During the CoVid-19 pandemic, these library policies are subject to change in order to keep our students safe.
Each class visits the library based on a weekly rotating schedule. 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 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.
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.
