Library Rules and Procedures

Be sure to check your student's backpack each Tuesday for communication from school to parents.

1. Students have a scheduled library visit each week, but will have various opportunities to visit the library before school and during Open Library times.

2. Students may check out two books at a time.

3. Books are due on the student's scheduled library day. If rechecking a book, students must have the book with them to recheck.

4. If a student is absent on his/her library day, books are rechecked for that student and will be due at their next scheduled library time.

5. While fines are not charged at the elementary level, students must be diligent in returning books in a timely manner. Books may be renewed 3 times before it must be returned for the next reader on the list to check out. Students returning all books each library visit will be permitted to check out the maximum number of books.

6. Accidents do happen....but lost or damaged books must be paid for so we can replace that copy. Students may check out only one book until fees are paid.

Reading Program

Barbers Hill Blue Eagle Reading Program

This year the Elementary School Librarians are embarking on a brand new adventure! Mrs. Schultz and Ms. Johnson spent the spring of 2018 reading and evaluating new releases to include on the first annual Blue Eagle Nominee list. We had a great time exploring new reads, but boy, it was a difficult task! We narrowed it down to 10 incredible books that we believe our students will really enjoy reading! Students will be challenged to read at least 3 of the 10 choices to be eligible to vote for their favorite title at the end of the year. The librarians have encouraged students in grades 3 through 5 to read the nominees. Students reading all 10 of the nominees will be invited to a special party in the library at the end of the year.

We look forward to starting a NEW reading tradition! Find the 2018-19 list of nominees here!
