Intermediate students may check out two books at a time. Within the two books, students are allowed to check out 1 graphic novel, 1 Diary of a Wimpy Kid, or 1 Dork Diaries. Students are encouraged to use the"Five Finger Rule" when browsing and choosing a just right book. All books are checked out for two weeks, and may be renewed on an as needed basis. Language Arts teachers bring their classes to the library on a bi-weekly basis for circulation and students may utilize our Open Check Out program which allows them the flexibility to visit the library individually on a more frequent basis. All core academic teachers are welcome and encouraged to utilize the library for research, guest speakers, presentations, etc.
Parents, please help to ensure your child is a good library citizen by returning all books on time.
