Borrowing, Overdues Policy and Lost books
Please continue to remind students to bring library bags in Years1-3 and Smart cards in Years 4-6.
For Years 1-2 all fluency books must be scanned before returning to the tubs. Several students are still returning their books directly to the tub or the item is not being scanned properly. Parents who scan must be familiar with the correct procedure and also know of the importance of it.
Please reduce the amount of time returned books stay in your classroom as often these are the ones that get mislaid and 'borrowed' by other students.
We have several parents mention this problem and are then reluctant to pay for the replacements.
Using the library space appropriately - encouraging independence and responsibility
Please use your time in the library to help guide students find a good book to read. Teachers are also responsible for supervising the students and managing inappropriate behaviour. Library assistants are responsible for library processes and procedures and helping students find books they are looking for.
It is everyone's responsibility to keep the library space organised and ready for all borrowers and researchers. Please remind students before you leave the library and check to see if it's satisfactory for the next class. Please return the books to the correct shelf or to the red bookcase if students are unsure. Beanbags need to be tidy for the next class to use.
Students are asked not to change any desktop design on the computers as these need to be easily accessible and useable for students in Yr2 upwards. Pencils and papers that are provided for library use need to remain in the library.
New books and the Wishlist
Teachers - please also add to the wishlist - we will try to source any book that you want to read to your classes or that you think we should have in the library. These books are purchased on a monthly basis.
Contacting Library Staff
We are happy to accommodate your changes - we just need to know about them.
