Library Services

The language and literacy specialist is available to parents every morning and afternoon (after carpool).  Children visit the library on a weekly basis to hear stories and participate in activities that promote language and literacy.  Parents and children are encouraged to use the Just 4 library on a regular basis.  The following guidelines are recommended for parents using the library:

  •  Parents are required to sign a textbook responsibility form and are responsible for library books checked out to their child.
  •  Parents may check out books from the school library from 7:30 a.m. - 8:00 a.m. and from 2:50 p.m. -3:10 p.m. each day (or they may send a signed note giving permission for their child's teacher to check out books to be sent home with the child).
  •  If a book is damaged or becomes misplaced, parents are to contact the language and literacy specialist for assistance with replacement.
  • Parents are also encouraged to use the public library and to read to their child on a daily basis.  Research shows 10 minutes of reading each night can significantly increase reading ability.
