How many books may my child check out?
Pre-K students do not check out books. Kindergarten students check
out books but do not bring them home. Students in first grade and
older may take out 2 books. In grades 1-3 one book must be at their
independent reading level and one book may be a book of their choice.
Exceptions to the 2 book rule are made on an individual basis depending
on whether a student is working on a special project that requires
How long are books checked out for?
Books are checked out for two weeks but most students return
their books the next time they come to the library. Students in
grades k-2 have regularly scheduled weekly library sessions.
What do students do in their library classes?
Students in grades k-2 are read a book each week that is integrated
with their classroom curriculum. This may be a seasonal book,
a holiday book, or something that they are studying in their
classroom like butterflies or frogs. After the story, they do a
short activity which reinforces an aspect of the book. This
activity may include a craft project, a word search, an acrostic
or some other activity. Students then check out library books.
Library classes are usually 45 minutes long. Grades 3 and up have
library classes as is necessary. They do have regularly scheduled
computer periods however.
