BOOK CHECK-OUT POLICY
First grade is allowed to check out 1 book at a time.
All 2nd through 6th graders are allowed to check out 2 books.
Students may keep books for 2 weeks, but are encouraged to return a book as soon as possible so they can find another book to read.
There is a $0.05 charge for each day a book is overdue.
DAMAGED & LOST BOOK POLICY
Accidents happen! If a book is damaged the student should report the damage so that the librarian may, if possible, repair the book. If a book is lost or damaged beyond use, the student must pay for the total cost of the book.
ACCELERATED READER (AR)
About the AR Program: Accelerated Reader (AR) is an electronic reading incentive program that is designed to motivate students to read more and better quality books. First, students read AR books and take a computerized test. After the test has been scored, points are awarded to students based upon the number of correct answers given and the point value of the book.
Remembering Our Goal:
Please keep in mind that AR is NOT all about the points. The purpose of AR is to
1. Encourage a love for reading.
2. Improve reading skills by allowing children to read and test on books that are on their reading level.
