The School Library: What Parents Should Know

Savvy parents and educators know that the school library is key to teaching students not just to read, but to practice the skills they need to seek, evaluate and use information throughout their lives. In fact, research shows those students from schools with professionally staffed, fully equipped libraries score higher on achievement tests. (click on title for more information)

Library information will be sent home the week of August 21st, and all students will go through library orientation the week of August 28th. At this time, students will be given a Welcome Packet for the library. A permission slip is attached in the packet. Parents will need to sign the permission slip either giving permission to check out library books or exempting their child from checking out library books. Once the permission slip is returned to the library a library book bag and library card will be given to the student so he/she may begin checking out books.

 If your child misplaces his/her library bag please send a note, along with the $1.00 replacement bag fee, to the library. All students need to have a library book bag in order to check out library books.




Library Information & Book Checkout Policy

Students in grades K-4 may have one book checked out at a time. All books may be checked out for one week and may be renewed on an as needed basis. All classes will visit the library weekly for instruction and checkout. All 3rd and 4th grade students may earn the privilege of checking out two books at a time. Students may utilize Open Checkout  which allows every student the flexibility to visit the library individually on a more frequent basis.

Parents, please help to ensure your child is a good library citizen and returns his/her book on time. Review the the Welcome Packet with your child. Sign and return the permission portion of the packet. You have the option to give permission for check out or deny permission for check out. Once the library receives the signed permission form, your child will be given a special library book bag and his/her library card. The library book bag should be used by your child, at all times, to store and transport his/her library book. If a library book bag is lost your child will need to bring a note from you requesting a new bag, along with a $1.00 bag replacement fee. Students may not check out a library book without a library book bag.

Access to search for books in our library may be done from the classroom or home. Access is through the campus web page, clicking on Resources, and then click on Library.
