Update from the Library-Mrs. Powers

We are so excited to start the beginning of the school year with regular library check out this year! Every class will have a consistent library check out day (see below). This should make it easier to remember when to bring those books back. Students can bring back their books any day of the week, but for now will always be checking out on their scheduled days. Because Mrs. Rider (the new Mrs. Seavey) is new to the library we are starting out simple to get the hang of things. There will not be reservations or book holds right now. We have increased the amount of books younger students may check out so they have more opportunities for reading at home. Please help them return their books so they can keep checking them out. Here is the library check out schedule with amount of books each grade can check out. Just know that we lowered the amount of books for the first checkout but will be increasing the number with successful returns.
