    Summer Library

    The library will be open some Tuesday afternoons over the summer. Dowload this flier for summer library dates and activities, as well as summer reading activities in our community! Stretch your brain this summer with reading and interesting activities! Keeping your brain active helps you be ready to learn when you come back to school in August.


    Library Use

    Hours: 7:15 am - 3:30 pm  on school days. Students, teachers, and parents can check out and return materials during this time.

    Morning Library is open from 7:15 - 7:30. Students may come every other day until we reach capacity. Students should have breakfast at home or in the cafeteria before coming to the library.

    Whole classes come to the library when they need to do research or for library lessons and stories. Students may also visit the library to check out materials on an as needed basis as they finish their reading materials.

    There are no fines for overdue books but students cannot check out new materials until until all overdues are returned. Fines will be charged for damaged and lost materials and shelf markers. Refunds can be issued for payments over $5 if the materials are found and returned in good condition within one year.
