EAST PETERSBURG ELEMENTARY

LIBRARY PROGRAM INFORMATION

Dear Families:

 

Welcome to the library! While your child is at East Petersburg Elementary, he/she will be visiting the library frequently to check out books, practice skills, do research, use the computers, read, and listen to stories.  The library has excellent resources to support and enrich your child’s learning experiences.  Your child will participate in a welcome visit in which the library procedures are explained.  All students are expected to take care of materials, return materials on time, use good manners, and be considerate of others during each visit.

Students are encouraged to return their books each library visit.  However, they may renew the books if more time is needed to read them.  Kindergarten students may check out one book at a time.  First through fourth grade students will be allowed to check out two books at a time.  Fifth and sixth grade students will be allowed to check out three books at once.  Please take time to read with your child and look at his/her library books.  Asking questions about the stories increases your child’s comprehension and learning.  Encyclopedias and other reference books are used in the library and are not allowed to be checked out.  There are no fines for overdue books, but a student may not check out any additional books until overdue materials are returned.  Students will be notified about overdue books.  Fees will be charged for lost or damaged materials.

The circulation system is managed by a computer.  Each book has a barcode on it.  Please remind your child not to damage or remove these barcodes.  If a book needs any kind of repair, please let me know.

During the year, the library will host special events including book fairs and an author visit. Please feel free to visit the library and ask about volunteering your time.  This year, I am the librarian for East Petersburg Elementary four out of the six- day cycle.  The other two days Day 2 and Day 5), I am the librarian at Landisville Primary Center.  I look forward to sharing many exciting learning experiences with your child!
