Library Classes

Elementary (scroll down for 7-12)

All students visit the school library weekly to learn information literacy skills, checkout materials, story time, and technology lessons. The purpose of visiting the library is to learn how to locate and use information effectively (information literacy) and to encourage the enjoyment of reading.

  • Half day Kindergarten: TBA
  • Full day Kindergarten and grades 1-6: Two 30 minutes sessions per week. (During one of their sessions, students learn about literature and how to locate, evaluate, and extract information from a variety of sources. The other 30 minute session may be used for stories and checkout.)
 

Check out:

 
  • Elementary students may check out one to three books at a time.  
  • They may visit the library everyday to exchange books if a library staff member is available.
  • The loan period is 3 weeks. 
  • Students may renew items one time. 
  • Reference materials may be checked out overnight at the discretion of the library staff. 
  • A student may have one book from a series at a time.
  • Students are responsible for the library materials they check out in their name. Please caution your child about sharing books without returning the book first. Replacements or replacement costs will be required for lost books and books damaged due to mishandling. 
Here are some ways you can help your child be responsible when borrowing library books.  

1.    Provide a backpack, book bag or plastic bag to keep books safe and dry.

2.    Have a special place at home to keep books out of reach of pets and/or younger children.

3.    Help your child return books on time.

4.    Read with your child. Our library staff is happy to assist parents and students with special requests about books, reading, and finding information. Parents are welcome to check out materials.
