Student Check Out Policy

The student checkout policy reflects the number of books a student may have out at any given time. Circulation is based on a two week checkout period, however students are encouraged to renew books throughout the week, providing they have returned the previous book(s). Kindergarten students will keep the books they checkout in the classrooms during the nine weeks.  After that time, parental permission is required for home circulation.

We do not charge fines for overdue books, but students are required to pay for lost or damaged books. Overdue notices are sent out on a routine basis. Therefore, if a student has books checked out that extends the two week circulation period, their borrowing privileges may be suspended until the overdue item(s) are returned or paid for. Parents will be refunded if the book is found and returned in good condition within the calendar school year.

Parents are welcomed to visit the library after receiving a visitor’s pass from the office. We are always looking for volunteers who are willing to help shelve books, and help with the Fall and Spring Scholastic Book Fairs.

Students will have multiple opportunities to utilize technology as well as  explore and develop 21st Century technology skills, throughout the school year. Students visit the computer lab weekly with their classroom teacher and/or during their scheduled library classes for technology activities that support curriculum standards as well as classroom-based projects.

Students in grades 1 - 5 may visit the library with a pass from their classroom teacher during the allotted time for Open Library (times are posted outside the library door). Students will use the Open Library Station to sign in and out during this time.

Makerspace is a specific area that provides hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build and invent as they engage in science, engineering and tinkering.
