Frequently Asked Questions
How often do students come to the library?
Kinder - 2nd students come to the library every week. They check out books, listen to stories, participate in library stations and different activities. For 3rd - 5th grade students, we have an open library schedule and they are allowed to come to library whenever they need to. They also come with their class for a library lesson and check-in/checkout time as their teacher requests.
How many books can I check out?
Kindergarten - 2nd Grade=1 book
(signed Library Media Center Permission Slips need to be returned before students are allowed to take library books home)
3rd - 5th graders = 2 books
When are books due?
Student check-outs are for 2 weeks. They are allowed to recheck a book if they need more time to finish it. Books that are out longer than two weeks are considered to be lost and may be subject to a fine.
Do you charge fines?
We do not charge fines for overdue books, only lost or damaged books. Books are marked lost when over due by 2 weeks. A student is expected to pay for lost or damaged books before continuing to check out more library materials.
When are all books due back to the library?
Books are due back to the library around the first week of May. All books that have not returned to the library by the designated last day of turn in will be marked lost and a fine will be issued. If students do not bring their books back or pay for their lost books, they will not attend Field Day or receive their report cards at the end of the year, and the fines on their accounts will travel with them wherever they may go in the district.
