How Many Books Can I Take out?

Students in Grades 1-6 may take out 3 books at a time.

Students in Kindergarten may take out 2 books at a time.

For all students, all books must be returned before any new books can be taken out of the library. This promotes responsibility, reduces loss and encourages students to finish reading their books.

Teachers may take out an unlimited number of books and may also take out books on a student's behalf.

Students are allowed to take out additional books if they are for a school assignment or project.


How long can I take books out from the libary?

Students' books are checked out for one week. They are due back the following week during their class' regular library period. New books will not be allowed to be checked out until all previous books are returned to the library.


Can I renew My books?

Students may renew one or more of their books for another week if requested, unless that book is requested for hold by another student or teacher.


How many times can I renew a book?

A book can be renewed once without question if the books is present with the student. Students wishing to renew books two or more times will need to talk to their teacher or the library technician to determine if the book is at a level of difficulty too high for them (an easier one should be chosen), they have lost interest in the book (another should be chosen) or the student simply needs more time to finish the book (renewal will be granted).  Students should be choosing books that can easily be read within two weeks.
