The number of books a student may check out is determined by grade level and individual responsibility for returning materials. 

 Students are encouraged to read and be responsible users of books! 

Students and parents sign the Library Letter at the start of the school year to accept responsibility for the library books they borrow - including paying for lost items. 

1.  Don't judge by the cover alone.

2.  Read the summary on the book.

3.  Read the first paragraph in the book.

4.  Find a favorite genre or book type.

5.  Read a book series.

6.  Choose a book by a well-known author.

7.  Use the five-finger test.

8.  Tell your librarian about some books you've enjoyed and ask for more suggestions.

9.  Read a book that was made into a movie.

10. Ask your friends and teacher for suggestions.

What would you like to read / see in the library?

If you have a resource, book, or link that you think would be helpful for the library, please click submit your comment: please sign your full name so if I have questions I can talk with you on your ideas! For book recommendations, please find the book on Amazon for me to preview. 

Thanks for your ideas!
