Library rules and expectations
Top of Page

The library rules and expectations are the same as the rules and expectations for the whole school: Be Safe.
Be Respectful. Be Responsible. Some library specific examples include:
  • Be Safe:
    • Walk at all times
    • Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself
  • Be Respectful:
    • Follow directions
    • Speak calmly, and quietly
    • Use materials properly
  • Be Responsible:
    • Treat books and materials with care
    • Keep books clean and free from damage
    • Return books on time
    • "Own it, fix it, learn from it"
      • If you make a mistake or break a rule, by accident or on purpose: OWN up to IT by admitting what happened, FIX IT to the best of your ability or ask and adult to help you, and LEARN FROM IT and how to avoid making the same mistake again.

Library book policies
Top of Page

Students may check out up to two books at a time and all books are due four weeks from the day they are checked out. If there is a school holiday or closure that affects the due date, the new due date is the following week on the day of their scheduled class time. 
 
Teachers may use their discretion as to whether library books may be taken home. Typically, grades TK through third keep their library books in the classroom, while fourth and fifth graders are allowed to take their books home.
 
Books may be returned at any time during library hours to the Library Technician, or to the office if the library is closed.
 
Please make a habit of returning your books on time, as there may be other students who are waiting to check them out. If no one is waiting, you may renew your check-out if you choose.
