news from your Hollin Meadows Library

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!

Library hours:

8:10-3:10 for students

7:40-3:40 for staff

Debbie and I are excited to be back together and to be at your service in the Hollin Meadows library!

Our mission is to help every student develop a love of reading, become a skilled user of ideas and information and explore the world through print and electronic media.

The library operates on a fixed schedule for grades prek-3 and a flexible schedule for grades 4-6. When a class is on a fixed schedule, the classroom teacher has team planning or meeting time away from the library while his/her students receive library instruction aligned with their grade level curriculum. Classes with flexible scheduling collaborate (co-plan and co-teach) with the librarian to provide optimum access to library resources in support of inquiry learning.

Gentle reminders:

Before whole-class checkout; on your check-out day, please return class library books following the morning news. Checkout is faster if all previously-borrowed books have been checked in before your class arrives.

Checkout limits: prek-1/ book, K/1-2 books, 1st-6th/up to 5 books

Library Crates: Classroom library crates are for transporting library books only. If you need a new crate, please stop by the library.
