Important Library Info

As we approach the beginning of a brand new school year please take a moment to review this important information regarding our Citrus Library.

Dear Citrus Parent,
Please urge your children to practice reading every day, as reading ability is key to success in school and in life. You can help by reading with your kids each day at home.
To encourage reading success, every Citrus class visits the library each week. You are responsible for your student’s library use. Parents will be expected to pay the replacement price for any lost or damaged books. Avoid this by helping your child find a safe place to keep library books, away from siblings, pets, food and liquids. A backpack is usually the best spot, as long as there are no leaky water bottles inside!
If your child still owes Citrus a book from last year, he or she will not be permitted to borrow this year until the overdue book is returned or paid for. Please help your child meet this responsibility so they have access to borrowing books they can get excited about reading.
Questions about your child’s borrower account at the Citrus Library? Email our Library clerk, Mrs. Gray, at
