When Can I Checkout Books?

1st-5th graders will start checkouts after one full color day rotation: Wednesday, August 22nd . This will allow us to do a Library introduction with all classes. We'll start Kindergarten checkouts in a few weeks.

When can I take AR tests?

Unfortunately, this is out of our control. 2nd-5th graders can begin AR testing as soon as the county opens the program. We will keep our teachers informed with any information from the county. 1st graders will begin AR testing later this year. Kindergartners do not AR test.

When do students go to the library?

All students come for library class once every 7 school days. We are part of the 35 minute, color day, Special Area rotation. Individual teachers send students to the library throughout the day. We are also open at 7:55 EVERY morning.

How long can I checkout a book? Are there late fines?

Books are checked out for two weeks.

We do not charge late fines, only fees for lost or damaged books.

Can parents checkout?

Yes! We welcome parents for checkouts in the library 8:45-1:30. Please check-in with Miss Tammy at the front desk. Parents can checkout up to 10 books. Many families take advantage of our monthly Family Checkout nights.
