ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

duolingo

Interested in learning a language? Duolingo is an app that can be used on a Smartphone or on a regular computer screen, and tests your skills in reading, writing, and speaking. It's set up sort of like a game, and you can compete against your friends to see who earns the most points! (I'm an avid user--feel free to challenge me!) If you're an English speaker, Duolingo currently offers lessons in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, French, Dutch, Danish, Irish, and German. If you're a Spanish speaker, or a speaker of a variety of other languages, you can also use it the opposite way, and hone your skills in English.

POLICIES

RESPECT
- the books
- the technology
- each other
- and yourself. 

No food, drinks, or phones allowed in the library.

Hate speech will not be allowed in our library. Help make the library a safe space for all!

Students can check out library books, textbooks, magazines, and DVDs from the SRIS/VRMS Library. 

Books and other library materials are due in two weeks. The due date is stamped on the checkout slip inside the cover. Regular due dates do not apply to textbooks--students can keep those at home for as long as they need, as long as they are returned by the end of the school year.

If books are overdue, students will be notified via their school gmail account. There is no charge for overdue books; however, it is necessary to pay for or replace lost books.  Lost book fines may be paid in the office and the fine will be deleted from Skyward (student information system) after payment is received. 

We offer only G and PG rated DVDs, and students will need to have a parental permission slip signed to check out PG movies per district policy.

Certain books with more mature content will be marked "Young Adult" for View Ridge Middle School students only. Sunset Ridge Intermediate students can check out these books with a signed parental permission slip.

RSD libraries

The Ridgefield School District libraries’ purpose is two-fold: to instill a life-long love of reading and to create a community of critical thinkers who can efficiently use, evaluate, and produce information in order to be a contributing member of society.
