The Kindergarten students will visit the library each week for 30 minutes. Kindergarten students come to us in the fall with a wide variety of experiences and backgrounds. We have found that these students are best suited to begin checking out books after the Christmas holidays. It generally takes a semester to instill good library habits with these students. After the mid-year break, the Kindergarten students will begin checking out one book each week.
Students in grades 1-4 will visit the library weekly for 30 minutes. During this scheduled visit, students will be able to check out books. Students in First Grade check out one book. After the Christmas holidays, students in First Grade are able to check out two books.
Students in grades 2-4 are allowed to check out two books. The students in grades 2-4 are also allowed to use a library pass from their teachers to come in during the week (at Open Access and recess) to exchange books that they have finished. Books may be renewed if a student needs them for a longer period of time. However, the student must bring the book in to renew it. Students may put books on hold, so that if a particular book is checked out, it will be held for them when it is turned in.
Students are not assessed fines for overdue books. However, students are not allowed to check out books or renew books if they have an overdue library book. Once the overdue library book is returned, the student may continue checking out books. Please assist us in helping your child be responsible for his/her library books. Each student is responsible for any book he/she checks out.
