Student Checkout
Students in grades 1-2 may check out two books at a time, while students in grades 3-5 may check out three books at a time.  Kindergarten students visit the library weekly with their teacher to listen to a story. They each check out one book and return it the following week.  Please remember: all books are due back in two weeks from check out date.
Notices will be sent out regarding overdue books. There are no fines for books returned after their due date, but students will not be allowed to check out additional books until their overdue items have been returned. Students will be charged for lost or damaged books.
 
Schedule
The Media Center operates on an open, flexible schedule!  Students may come individually or in small groups (limit 4 students) with a Media Pass (student library card).  Each student is responsible for his/her own book exchange.  Whole class lessons can be scheduled with the Media Specialist.

Orientation
Orientation is held each fall to acquaint students with Media Center resources and procedures.  New students arriving after that will be assisted by classmates in learning about our Media Center.
