2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students are allowed 2 books at a time.
We know becoming a reader begins at home. Building a love of reading in your child by reading aloud at home strengthens their language, vocabulary and comprehension skills, and improves their social skills and confidence as you listen to them read. Thank you for encouraging your child to read by reading with them each night. We suggest 20 min. of reading each night. We encourage parents to talk to their students about the materials they choose regarding a book’s content.
Books are loaned out for 1 week at a time and can be renewed if the student needs it longer. Lost or damaged books are the responsibility of the parent/guardian. Parents/guardians may pay the cost assigned by the library, or they may purchase a new copy. Students may not be permitted to borrow more materials until overdue, lost, or damaged materials are taken care of.
Mrs. Walker is in the Elementary library every day and will lead students through their weekly lessons and book-borrowing experiences. She will help students pick out a wide range of books meant to help develop a love for reading and learning. She will assist students in finding books of an appropriate reading level, books to challenge growing readers and books to interest readers who may be struggling to connect to the written word. The library encourages hands-on activities through fun centers that allow students to interact with different manipulatives to enhance learning.
