Students are expected to visit the library with the purpose of checking out books, participating in lessons, researching, reading or working quietly.
Students are expected to exhibit appropriate classroom behaviors:
Respect yourself and others.
Respect all school property.
Use an "inside" voice appropriate to the given task.
Listen when others are speaking.
Use your time wisely.
Students may check out books, audiobooks, and magazines. Books and audiobooks are checked out for a two-week period. Magazines are checked out for a one-week period.
Items may be renewed if a student needs more time to read or listen to the item. Books on the current Bluebonnet list and books in exceptionally high demand (i.e. the new Guinness World Record books and "hot" titles) are the exception to this policy.
Students may visit the library during Open Circulation times with their teacher's permission.
Students may only have one browsing (I-Spy, comic, Guinness, Ripley's Believe It or Not or drawing book) at a time.
First - Fifth Grade students are expected to have a book at their individual reading levels, for third through fifth grade this should be a fiction chapter book.
Overdue notices are emailed Saturday mornings at 1:00 AM. If you do not have a valid e-mail in Skyward, a paper notice may be sent home on Mondays of each week. These serve as a reminder. No late fines are accessed in the elementary schools.
Once a student has an item that is more than two weeks overdue, he or she may not check out additional items until the item is returned.
Any student checking out materials from the school library is responsible for the care of these items.Fines will be assessed for damage, and students are required to pay for lost materials in the amount necessary to purchase an exact replacement or one that is comparable if the item is no longer available.Refunds for lost materials that are later found, will be made if the item is in good condition and is returned within the school year in which it was lost.
