Starting Mon. Nov. 24th

Limit on Book Check out is changing

Students in primary, junior and intermediate grades will have the option of checking out more books starting Mon. Nov. 24th . For a while students have requesting that they be allowed to check out more books. Recently in speaking to many parents during SLC the same requests were proposed. It has been something I have been considering for some time too.

There are quite a few libraries in our board that have been giving students the option of checking out more books. With this comes the responsibility of returning books for sure. So students will need to be returning books that they are finished reading. If they are not finished reading the books they do not have to return them though.The idea is that there be a flow of books being returned and books being checked out.

This will allow students the opportunity to check out a variety of books for a variety of purposes. With the refresh to our collection we have books to support a wide range or readers for a wide variety of purposes.

Our board standard is 3 books per student. If a student would like to check out more or if a teacher would like a student to check out more please speak to me.

If you have any questions let me know.

Happy Reading!
