• Timmerman Elementary Library

    Library Use

    Hours: 7:10 am - 3:30 pm  on school days. Parents must sign in in the office. Students, teachers, and parents can check out and return materials during this time.

    Morning Library is open from 7:10 - 7:25. This is a time for checking out books and junior librarians. 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 of the payment.
