LIBRARY

PHILOSOPHY

For every reader, the best book.

For every question, the best answer.

For every need, the best resource.

For every encounter, the best experience.

For every library dollar, the best value.

For every person, a place to belong.*


BELIEF STATEMENT

School libraries are essential to the development of learning skills. School libraries provide equitable physical and intellectual access to the resources and tools required for learning in a warm, engaging, and safe environment. School librarians collaborate with others to provide instruction, learning strategies, and practice in using the essential learning skills needed in the 21st century.*

Check-out Information

Students may check out materials from the Abbott Library during regular school hours, 8:35 am-3:05 pm. While some primary classes do have storytime at a scheduled time each week, the library is open for all students to return and check out books anytime. Students with over due books cannot check out new books until those items are returned. Checkout period is two weeks. Students may check out two items at one time.


Please help your child find a special place where his/her book can be kept so that it will not be damaged or lost. If the book is damaged or lost, it is our policy to charge the replacement value of the item. If the item is found, a reimbursement will be made. Please do not repair damage to a book.
