Library Information and procedures
Open checkout time for students in grades 2-5 from 7:05- 7:30 AM. Exchange library books, get a loaner laptop, etc. Check in with your teacher before you come to the library!
Tech help: Daily from 7:30- 7:45 a.m.- see Mrs. Kovach or Ms. Heffner
Teachers may schedule a time for classes to come just for checkout when the media center is not used for classes. Please use the Google form or email Mrs. Kovach to schedule.
Library Book Checkout Policies:
Each class visits the library as part of the "Specials" rotation for media class and book checkout. Ask your child what day of the week his or her class visits the library, and help your child return library books on that day. K-2 students may visit on non-class weeks for a short checkout time. 3-5 students utilize open checkout any day they wish.
Books are checked out for two weeks. If he/she is not finished reading a book, it can be renewed for another two weeks, but the book must be brought to the library to do this. The book will be considered overdue if it is not brought in to renew.
We do not charge overdue fines, but only one book at a time can be checked out until the overdue items are returned (applies to students in 1-5th grades). If books are overdue by more than 2 months, checkout privileges may be suspended until the books are found or replacements paid for. Overdue notices are sent home and students are encouraged to look EVERYWHERE before paying for a book! We accept cash or check for lost or damaged books. If a book is found and returned in good condition within one year, the payment will be refunded.
- Kindergarten: 1 book, no overdue permitted
- 1st Grade: 2 books
- 2nd Grade: 2 books
- 3rd- 5th Grade: 3 books (recommended), but a 6 book maximum is permitted when needed for class projects with permission from Mrs. Kovach and classroom teacher. E-BOB team members may have up to 6 books at a time.
