Each class has an assigned time to visit the library each week. Library books allow for instruction, book recommendation, story sharing and the exchange of books. To be prepared, for library students should come with their library books or other reading material.
There is time at the beginning of each school day to allow students, with teacher approval, to exchange books outside of their class’s scheduled time.
Check Out Limits
Kindergarten: 1 book per visit
1st Grade: 1 book per visit
2nd Grade: 2 books per visit
3rd-6th Grades: 3 books per visit
Students in 3rd – 6th grade may place up to 5 books on hold at a time. Students will be taught to access their account online for this procedure. Books will be checked out to the student and put in the teacher’s box to give to the student. Books on hold will not be checked out to students with excessive overdue book or any fines.
Books are checked out for 2 weeks. However, students are encouraged to bring back their books each week and renew them if they have not finished. They may renew the books an indefinite number of times UNLESS another student has requested that title. Once the book is delinquent, email notices are sent to the student as well as the parents. There are no fines for overdue books, however, students with late/missing books will not be allowed to continue to check out until overdue materials are retuned or renewed.
End of Year Book Return
All books are to be accounted for by the student’s final visit the second to last week of school. Any book not returned will be considered lost and a fine will be added to the student’s account.
Lost or Damaged Books
Per district policy, payment is required for the loss or damage of a book. The payment due will be the cost of the book at the time of acquisition, along with a $2.00 processing fee. THE SCHOOL WILL NOT ACCEPT A COPY OF THE LOST BOOK IN EXCHANGE FOR PAYMENT. Payments can be made to the office, online, or to the library with a check.
The aim of the Eagle Bay Library is to have a current, engaging, relevant and diverse collection. When choosing books, a first consideration is given to procuring titles that have proved popular with our student body. Much attention is given to providing texts which will complement each grade’s curriculum and core standards, along with striving to keep up-to-date informational materials as budget allows. There is also an effort to provide information on a wide variety of topics, which might be relevant to the ages and maturity levels of our students. Parents are encouraged to take an active interest in their child’s reading materials. Our library serves a broad age range. Parents and students should realize that not every book in the library will be appropriate for each child in the school. If a title does not work for a particular student, they are encouraged to return it and find something that will fit better.
Please ensure that library books are well cared for while they are in your home. Keep them away from food, liquid, small children and pets. Store them in clean, safe locations.
Students are expected to exhibit appropriate library behavior during class and open library time and will be rewarded for their efforts.
“There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book.” Frank Sarafini
