All students may check out books, magazines, and audio books. We encourage all students to choose a variety of books, including at least one fiction book.
When a book is overdue, the student's account is blocked by the computer, preventing new material from being borrowed. When this happens, we send a "love note" home with the child to request a grown-up's help with locating the book. During the time before the overdue book is returned to school, students are encouraged to borrow a book from "The Purple Box." This is a box of very good paperback books that have been donated to us. Students may also put one book on the "Save" shelf until their overdue books are returned.
