Our school library is open and available for student, staff and parent use throughout the school year.  Classrooms visit the library weekly to hear stories, use resources and check out library books.  All library books are due the following week and can be renewed if needed (with a few exceptions).  Children are instructed on how to use the resources in the library, find library books, library rules and appropriate library behavior.  If a student loses or damages a library book  that is beyond repair, parents are asked to pay for the cost of the book.
