2023-2024 Library Schedule of Classes
4th and 5th grade students need to return their books on books on or before Monday. Teachers allow classroom time on Mondays for students to request new books by placing holds and/or renew books that are due if they intend to keep them for another two weeks. Books requested through holds will be delivered to classrooms the next morning for distribution. Students can also place holds on books from home at any time.
3rd grade students request one book onTuesdays in their lexile range and visit the library on Wednesday to choose another book if they wish.
Tk-2nd grade students visit the outdoor library to choose a new book each week. Books must be returned each week in order to check out another book. Returned books are to be placed in one of the blue "Library Book Return" carts found at either end of the campus or the wood box cart in front of the library before school starts. PLEASE DO NOT RETURN BOOKS TO THE CLASSROOM OR OFFICE.

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 checking out library books and receiving your textbooks. You can do your part to help maintain these materials in the following ways:
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 $60.00, 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.
Cover all hardcover textbooks that go home, currently there is just a few classes using TCI Social Studies textbooks. Brown paper bags make excellent book covers.
Please DO NOT use self-stick materials to cover books.
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
Each year we loose several books to liquid damage from leaking juice boxes and waterbottles in backpacks. In order to protect library books from acidents in backpacks and being billed for books that have to be thrown away, I am requesting students to use a clean plastic bag that can be kept in their backpack for the purpose of transporting library books to and from school. Below is a photo of an ideal bag that will last all year and can be purchased 3 for a dollar at the Dollar Tree. (they are found in the home section, not the food section)
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.
