Our wall of NEW chapter books. Come check some out!

Library days: 

Tuesday to Friday. No librarian is on duty on Monday. 

Off timetable book exchange:

8:45-9:00 and 3:00-3:15 Tuesday to Friday, in addition to classroom scheduled book exchange times. 

The library is closed at recess and lunch. 

Borrowing limits: 

Kindergarten to grade 2:         2 books at a time 

                             grade 3:         3 books 

                             grade 4-7:     4 or more books depending on project related needs 

Loan Periods: 

In most cases, books can be borrowed for 2 weeks. If students need more time, they can renew the book(s).

For the younger students (Grades K-2), I strongly encourage them to return/exchange their books on a weekly basis to maintain a consistent routine. 

Book returns: 

Students can return books to the library Monday-Friday, anytime during school hours, they don’t need to wait until their scheduled book exchange time.

They can come in & quickly drop off their books on the front counter, but cannot hangout in the library unsupervised. 

Book care: 

The kindergarten or grade 1’s of div 13, 14, 15 are encouraged to use the book bags that were provided by their classroom teacher. 

Other students are encouraged to keep a large, sturdy, clean, dry plastic bag in their backpack so they can transport their books to & from school while keeping the books away from snacks, rain, and spilled liquids. 

During orientation, students are taught to be responsible for the books they borrow under their name, and for keeping the books in good condition.

To avoid lost book mix-ups, students shouldn’t be trading checked-out books with each other. They should come to the library together with their friend and I can assign the book to the new borrower.

If any parents have concerns about lost or missing books, or have any other library related questions, please come by or contact me at the school phone number. I’m happy to hear from parents, and usually any mix-ups are sorted out quickly.
