Check OutStudents have check out time during their regularly scheduled LLC time each week. In addition to this, students are able to return and check out new books during open library the first fifteen and last fifteen minutes of each day at their classroom teacher's discretion.Materials are checked out for one week and can be renewed for two additional weeks.
Materials are student chosen with teacher recommendations. We have over 20,000 items for check out including fiction, non-fiction, early readers, magazines, graphic novels, books on CD and Playaways (mP3 players with stored audio books).
The number of items to be checked out at one time varies by grade level:
Kindergarten - 1 item
1st and 2nd Grade - 2 items
3rd thru 5th Grade - Unlimited
*This number is up to you and your student with the requirement that students always have something to read.
Overdue, Lost or Damaged Books
If your child has a book that is overdue for more than one week, he or she will receive a reminder notice but will continue to check out items up to the grade level limit. If the book is overdue for more than one month, it is considered lost and he or she will need to return the book or pay for a replacement before taking home other materials - a notice will be sent with the price of the book. If a replacement is paid for and the book is found within three months, your money will be refunded.Occasionally, books become damaged. If this happens, please have your child return the book directly to me. I will do my best to repair the book. If repair is not possible (ex. water damage or chewed on by a pet) and a replacement must be made, a notice will go home with your student. Please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
