Check it out!  Students come to the library once a week with their class to check out books.  Kindergarten students check out three books at a time.  First through fourth grade students check out four books at a time.  Fifth grade students check out five books at a time.  Students also have the option to come to open check out each day from 8:30 – 9:00.  Our library is full of over 20,000 items that include informational text, fiction (picture books and chapter books), magazines, and audiobooks that students can choose from each day.  Students are responsible for those items checked out in their name and will need to pay for or replace lost or damaged items.  We also use MackinVia to provide access to eBooks and Audiobooks for student use on iPads.

“The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She traveled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village.”
