A second book may be checked out as needed for class assignments.

Library and Textbook Care

As the new school year begins there are a few things students can do to help keep materials clean. One of the exciting things about a new school year is receiving your textbooks and checking out library books. You can do your part to help maintain these materials in the following ways:
  • Cover all hardcover textbooks that go home, currently there is just the Science textbook. Brown paper bags make excellent book covers.
  • Please do not use self-stick materials to cover books.
  • Always have clean hands when reading /using books and remember to turn the pages from the top.
  • Find a place for library books and textbooks away from pets and younger siblings.
  • Do not put books in backpacks with lunches.  Drinks and food may leak out onto the books and cause permanent damage. The average cost to replace a textbooks is $50.00, library books typically range from $5.00 to  $40.00..
  • Please do not mend library or textbooks at home. Send damaged books to the library with a note for proper repair. Mrs. Carpenter can mend torn pages and broken bindings but she cannot remove liquids from paper so be careful. 
If a textbook or library book is lost or damaged beyond repair, parents will be billed for the replacement cost. If you locate a lost library or textbook within three months of paying for it, please return it to the library and reimbursement will be requested from the District Office (we do not keep funds at the school).

Library Book Bags

Due to the spread of the Covid 19 virus and the unknown life span of the virus on plastic, we will not be requesting students use these reusable bags at this time. 
 
 
Heavy Duty Storage Bags
 
  • All Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten students are provided with a blue plastic bag to transport their book back and forth to school in at the beginning of the year. These students must return their books to school in the blue bag each week in order to check out another book. If lost a new one can be purchased in the library for $1. 

HOLDS

3rd-5th Grade students will need to use Destiny Discover to place holds on books they would like to check-out. On their scheduled library day, I will be pulling available books from student's hold lists and delivering them to their classroom. Students are encouraged to build a list in Destiny Discover and add holds to their library account as they work through the list.
*Students can place up to five holds at a time.
*Please keep in mind that poplular books may not be available for some time due to quarantine requirements of returned books.
