LC Policies & Procedures

  • LC Time
    Students will be coming to the LC with their class once a week for 50-60 minutes depending on grade level.  Half of that time will be spent on library skills, book talks, and book checkout. The other half will consist of time in the computer lab.
    Checking out Books
    Students come to the LC for an official book checkout once a week.  However, students are allowed to return those books and check out new ones at any time during the week in small groups (given teacher permission).
    Students in Kindergarten can check out one book.
    1st to 5th grade students can check out a maximum of 2 items.  Items are due after seven (7) days; however they are allowed to renew those items two (2) times.
    Each student must check out at least 2 different types of books.
    Overdue Items
    All materials are checked out for 1 week at a time.  Students with OVERDUE items may continue to check out until they have reached the maximum number of checkout items for their grade.
    Lost/Damaged Books
    Students with LOST items cannot check out materials until the book is found or replacement costs have been paid.
