What's New?

Self Checkout

Students have been issued their very own Fleetridge Library cards this year. They are learning how to use the library scanner to checkout books on their own. Each card has the student's name, picture, and account barcode on the front.

Student Testimonials

Ashley (Grade 5) - It's really exciting to use the librarian's scanner. I think I want to be a librarian when I grow up.

Ja'Vion (Grade 3) - This is so cool. I listen for the beep to make sure I did it right. I really like zapping my own books.

Jennalee (Grade 2) - I like my picture on the card.

The Fleetridge PTA is sponsoring the Fall Scholastic Book Fair to benefit the Fleetridge Library. Student Council representatives will assist with title selections. Is there a book that you want but we don't have? Is there a book that you've been waiting to get your hands on FOREVER, but it's never on the self? Is there a book that you would recommend to others but it is in really bad shape?

Contact your STUCO Rep with your book suggestions.
