There is no check out limit after 2nd grade, but elementary students (3rd – 5th) are advised to check out what they need for the week.
When are students' books due?
Depending on grade level, there are different due dates for books:
  • Kindergarten - 2nd grade = 1 week
  • 3rd - 4th grade = 2 weeks
  • 5th - 8th grade = 1 month
When can students check books out?
  • Each class (Kindergarten through Fifth Grade) visits the library once a week for library instruction and book return/checkout. Students may also return books after school until 3:30p.m.
