IN THE NEWS
KIDS ARE AUTHORS
Students in Kindergarten are able to check out one book at a time.
Students in 1st-4th are allowed to check out two books at a time. Please note: At the beginning of the year we start out with one book, then as we learn how to use the library and how to care and return books, we bump it to two books at a time.
Books can be checked out for up to 3 weeks. Students can always come back to the library with a pass to return and check out new books during the week.
If books are overdue, notices are given to students on their library day and an email goes out on Sundays to the primary guardian and student's email. We also send out notices during grading periods. There is no charge for overdue books; however, it is necessary to pay for or replace lost and damaged books. Lost book fines may be paid online or the school office. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
