Back-to-School from the Library

Ruth Witter, WNPS Library Media Specialist

Welcome Back

Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year! Anne and I look forward to partnering with you this year for your reading, information literacy, and technology needs for your classroom. We consider it a great honor to be here for you, your students, and this school community. First and foremost, we are here to help you in any way that we can. If you need anything, please don’t hesitate to ask. As soon as the meeting is over today you may come and checkout any technology that you need for your classroom.

Library Cards and Circulation Policy

How do I get a library card/bag for my student?

We will automatically make a card/bag (PreK/K get bags and 1st/2nd get cards) There will not be a signed permission slip this year. We are trying this for the first time this year to make it easier and more streamlined.

When the card/bag is ready we will place it in your box or give it to the student if it happens to be their library day. Please note that it often takes around three days for them to be in the library program.

What about sending students?

We are on a fixed class schedule but we operate on flexible circulation. This means that you may send your students as often as they need to come to the library during library hours. (Kindergarten and PreK we will try to schedule times) Library hours will be posted on the TV. ***Since we are a rather large school, we ask that you send no more than 3 students at a time and please do not send the same student more than 3 times a day.

If you have a research, book report, or other project, please get with me to schedule a time for your class to come in and choose books with combined assistance of you and one of us from the library.

Big picture

Have a great year!
