How many books can I take out?
Unless special permission is granted, students are able to take out as many books that is equal to their grade number. For example, kindergarten and grade ones can take out one book, grade two can take out two books, grade threes can take out three books, etc. We encourage students to return all of their books before they can get new ones. In special circumstances, students are able to keep certain books longer than a week and still take out new ones. For example, if a grade 3 student has three books checked out and returns one book the following week (because they are still reading the other two), they are still allowed to check out one book to reach their three book maximum (one new book, and two books still from the previous week).
Can any student take out any book in the library?
I encourage students to have at least half of their weekly books at their reading level. I may instruct a student to make a different choice that is more at their reading level or verify that they have someone at home who will read the book aloud with them.
There are mature reads in the "Grade 7 only" section that can only be taken out by grade 7 students or grade 6 students with signed permission.
We returned our old books but my child didn't come home with a new book?
With hundreds of books circulating our library every week, sometimes books accidentally get misplaced by either the students or by our library team. If you're sure the book was returned, please contact the school and I will do a special search of our book shelves to look for the book!
What happens if I accidentally damage a book?
If you damage a book, PLEASE do not try to fix it at home. If you bring it in, we have special tools and tape that ensures a proper fix that will last a long time. If damaged books are a recurring theme, students may only be allowed to borrow books to keep in their classrooms, where they can practice proper book care before taking them home again. If damage to the book is un-fixable, a bill for the cost of the book will go home.
Why did I get a library bill?
Library bills will go home to students for both damaged books, or books that have not been returned. Just before winter break, spring break, and the end of the year, the library will collect ALL of the books back to check inventory and maintain an up-to-date catalog. We create bills for books that have not been returned by those times. If you receive a bill for a book you still have, please return the book and the bill back to the library as soon as possible and Mrs. Koehn and/or Mrs. Rouleau will do a little happy dance. If you have lost the book, students must pay for the full price of the book (listed on the bill) before they are allowed to check out books again from the library. If a bill is paid but the book is found at a later time, a full refund will be issued.
