Each class comes to the Library once every 2 weeks for 30 minutes. Kindergarteners do not check books out yet, instead we do stories and nursery rhymes, however they will also learn about Book Care, and starting to practice checkout procedures. First graders can check out a book but are only allowed to take them home with teacher's permission, after Winter Break. Second to Fifth grade students can check books out and take them home if they have permission from their teacher. Only Fifth graders are allowed to check out 2 books, everyone else is limited to 1 book.
If a student forgets their book they may not check out another one. We do not charge late fees/fines, but if a book is not returned within a timely period a letter may go home stating the replacement cost of the book. Students must return any overdue books or pay the fine before they may receive their Report Card at the end of the year.
During Library, classes will usually have a story read to them, and the upper grades will do occasional lesson plans. Library time is about finding books that children enjoy reading, learning about taking care of their books, and learning how Libraries work, and also about hearing stories read out loud, learning the joy of words.
