Below you will find information about the library. Please use the tabs at the top to navigate to other useful pages.
Generally, I am here from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm each day. Open checkout is 9:00 to 9:30 every day.
Library Checkout Policy:
Kindergarten= 1 book
1st grade= 1 book
2nd grade= 2 books
3rd-5th grade = 2 books and a magazine
All grade levels are scheduled to come to the library once a week for 45 minutes as part of the school resource schedule.I teach a lesson, have storytime or help with research and then the students check out books. Students in our AR grades (grades 2-5) may always get a book in their reading zone and a book of their choice. Magazines are checked out to students in grades 3-5. Students should bring their books to the library weekly. If they are not finished with them, they can be renewed.
Late Book Policy:
Students will NOT be able to check out a new book until all late books are returned, or the replacement fee is paid for a book that is lost. A letter will be sent home with the student letting his/her parent know of any lost library books.
Every day is library day at Providence!
Students are allowed to come to the library any time it is okay with their teacher to return and get new books. They are also welcome to visit the library to take AR quizzes or use the computers with teacher permission.
