Information About Our Library Program

 

  • Students attend library class once each week.
  • The number of books students check out each week is dependent on their grade level (K: 1 book, First: 2 books, Second: 2 books, Third: 3 books, 2/3 Quest: 3 books, Fourth: 4 books, Fifth: 4 books, 4/5 Quest: 4 books)
  • Students keep their books for 2 weeks before the books are considered overdue.
  • If you think you have lost a library book, just keep looking for it!  Books are almost never lost.  They have just taken a field trip to somewhere like under a bed.  Eventually, if you really cannot find the book, if you choose, you can send a replacement copy into the library. Replacement copies can be purchased from any bookseller.  They do not need to be special library copies.
