Going to the library is exciting for your child. It is a "grown-up" feeling being allowed to independently choose a book, bring it home, and have the responsibility of caring for that book.
In Media, we discuss how to take care of a library book. Children may need parental help in remembering and following these rules. We especially stress the importance of keeping books clean and dry. If your child carried a snack or beverage in that backpack, please seal them inside a separate plastic bag to help protect library books from accidental spills (and the resulting damaged book charge for replacement).
Kindergarten students check out one book at a time, and this may increase as the year goes on. Grades 1-5 may check out 3 books at a time. These books must be returned before others are checked out. Books are due ten school days after check out.
Overdue information will be emailed home via our automated system on Sundays. If books are lost or damaged, we do not charge fines, but we do accept non-refundable donations to help cover the cost of replacement.
Learning to read is a thrilling experience for a young child. We look forward to working with you and your child's teacher in fostering your child's love for reading and books. Please stop by, drop us a note, or call us (952-496-5842) with any questions, concerns, or comments.
