Borrowing Policies

Our Library is open for business each and every school day. In addition to scheduled library class, students are welcome to stop in and exchange books when their classroom teacher allows.

 

Borrowing Policies:   How Many Books Can I Check Out?  

                                        Which Books Can I Check Out?  

                                        When Do I Need to Return My Books?

Please see your grade level below to find answers to these questions.

Kindergarten - Students are allowed to borrow 1 item each week. Though this item may be selected from any area in our library (picture books, fiction, nonfiction, magazines), students begin the year learning about each section of the library separately and will not have the freedom to use each section right away.  All library books should be returned each week during regularly scheduled class time (see class schedules).  If a child forgets to return a book on library day, he or she may still select and check-out another book, with a note attached asking that the forgotten book at home be returned the very next day. If a child again forgets to return both of these books, no further books will be allowed to be brought home until the missing two have been returned to our library.

Grade 1 - Students are allowed to borrow 2 items each week. The first item may be selected from any area in our library (picture books, fiction, nonfiction, magazines). The second item must be from our Beginning Reader section. The BR section contains "practice reading" books which have controlled phonics and larger text. For more information about these books, see "Our Collection." All library books should be returned each week during regularly scheduled class time (see class schedules).  If a child forgets to return books on library day, he or she may hold books until the next day and then stop by for an exchange.

Grade 2 - Students are allowed to borrow 2 items each week from any area in our library. They may select from picture books, fiction, nonfiction, and magazines.  All library books should be returned each week during regularly scheduled class time (see class schedules).  If a child forgets to return books on library day, he or she may hold books until the next day and then stop by for an exchange

Grade 3 - Students are allowed to borrow 3 items each week from any area in our library. They may select from picture books, fiction, nonfiction, and magazines.  All library books should be returned each week during regularly scheduled class time (see class schedules).  If a child forgets to return books on library day, he or she may hold books until the next day and then stop by for an exchange.

Grade 4 - Students are allowed to borrow 4 items each week from any area in our library. They may select from picture books, fiction, nonfiction, and magazines.  All library books should be returned each week during regularly scheduled class time (see class schedules).  If a child forgets to return books on library day, he or she may hold books until the next day and then stop by for an exchange.

Grade 5 - Students are allowed to borrow 5 items each week from any area in our library. They may select from picture books, fiction, nonfiction, and magazines.  All library books should be returned each week during regularly scheduled class time (see class schedules).  If a child forgets to return books on library day, he or she may hold books until the next day and then stop by for an exchange.

Reference  - Reference materials are our tools for finding information. They may be checked out by students and teachers for the school day only. In this section you will find encyclopedias, dictionaries, almanacs, atlases, access to the Internet and more! Due to their high cost and frequent use, reference materials do not usually leave the school building. However, if a family has a special request for research projects, parents may come to school to check these items out.
