From the School Library 
In the coming weeks, K-2nd grade classes will be visiting the school library to check out books. 

Students in grades 3-8 are also welcome to visit the library during their free time to check out books. They may not use the library when there is a younger class in attendance.

Parents, please reinforce these library rules with your students: 
  1. Students may check out one book at a time.
  2. To check out a book, fill out the book's card and put it in the white box.
  3. Returned books go on the cart outside the library door. 
  4. Please return the book within two weeks.
Thanks, and happy reading!
