Tiffany Ridge Library Information
General Library Information
Students will begin checking out books on their 1st library visit.
- Kindergartners check out one book each visit unless they have not returned last week's book. Kindergartners are strongly encouraged to keep books in the classroom -at least at the beginning of the year.
- 1st grade will start with one and earn 2 books after a couple weeks of returning books 80% or better as a class.
- 2nd -5th grade will be allowed to check out 2 books. 3rd books will be added at teacher request for classroom projects/research. -we limit to one additional research book as many grade levels are researching similar topics at the same time.
The day before you have library you will receive a basket like this. It serves as a visual reminder that students need to make sure they have their books the next day. Please have students carefully set their books in the basket and send it down to the library 9ish
If a student would like to renew a book, simply have them leave their bookmark sticking out a little or attach a post-it note. Their book will be rechecked to them and waiting in the library for them when they come to class.
Students who cannot check out are allowed to read and even take home any of our swap shelf books. Older students are welcome to bring a book from their classroom to read, or a laptop so they can access eBooks during class checkout time.
Please have students use the restroom and get drinks before coming to Library -we are a long way from a water fountain.
