Our Mission Statement:  
To introduce and model the enjoyment of reading.  We will strive to provide a diverse and developmentally appropriate collection that will meet the abilities of each child.  We will foster a partnership between school, student, and parent that support academics and independent reading. 


Hours: 7:45-3:10 Mon-Fri. Students may check books in or out before school. 

Library Checkout Policy: 
Students may check out two books for a two week period. They can renew books three times only. 

Lost Books:
Must be paid for within 30 days.

Library Fines: 
Patrons are charged five cents per day for overdue books.  Overdue notices are sent out on a routine basis to the students in their classrooms.  We reserve the right to suspend borrowing privileges until the overdue items are taken care of.  If you have a question about your child's account, please contact the library.

Student Selection:
It is our belief that students should be free to select books on topics that are of personal interest. All people have the right to believe as they choose. If you object to certain subjects, please discuss this with your child, so they can check out accordingly. The library is not responsible for items checked out by students.
