    Our Library's Mission

    To ensure that students and staff members are responsible and skilled users of information and ideas.

    Our Goals

    • To allow students to use a variety of books and electronic (computer) resources
    • To introduce students to the research process
    • To encourage a love of reading by sharing a variety of genres of literature

    Visiting the Library

    Students have scheduled library instruction once a week. They are allowed to check out books at the end of each class. Addtionally, there is Open Library each morning from 7:20-7:45. With classroom teacher permission, students may exchange books during this time.

    Loan Policies

    Pre-K and Kindergarten students are allowed to check out 1 book.

    1st and 2nd graders may check out up to 2 books.

    All Primary materials are due a week from the day they are checked out.
    All materials may be renewed one time. 

    Overdue & Lost/Damaged Materials

    Reminder notes are sent out on a weekly basis.  There are no "overdue" fines, but it is expected that any lost or damaged materials are replaced or paid for. If a lost book is found and in good condition, it may be returned to the library for a refund if it was previously paid for.
