Welcome to Backman Library!  Library Hours:  School Days, 8:00 am to 20 minutes after the last bell

Book Check-Out

·        Kindergarteners and First Graders may check out one book each week to read at school in their classroom and the library.  Parents may request a family book chosen by their student to be brought home for reading.

·        Second, Third and Fourth Graders may check out one book each week for reading at school and one book to be responsible for outside of school starting UEA break.

·        Fifth and Sixth Graders may check out two books each week, one being for reading in class and the library. Students may make special requests to check out additional books with the librarian with classroom teacher approval.

Overdue Books

·        A student, who has forgotten his /her library books on the regularly scheduled day for the class, may not check out until the overdue books are returned. Students are able to return and check out books during their class’ scheduled time, before or after school.

·        If the student fails to return the books over three consecutive weeks, an overdue notice is provided. The student will take this notice home so parents can assist in returning the books to school.

·        No fines are charged, but the student’s checkout privilege may be revoked until his/her record is cleared.

Lost or Damaged Books

·        The student is responsible for the care of all books he or she has checked out. If a book is lost or damaged, the student must pay for the replacement cost of the book.  If the student is unable to pay, other arrangements may be made with the library teacher.
