Hours/Checkout Info

Check-out Information

Students may check out materials from the Abbott Library during regular school hours, 8:20 am-3:20 pm. All classes have a scheduled check-out time each week. In addition, students may come to the library throughout the day to exchange or check out books as well. Students with over due books cannot check out new books until those items are returned. The checkout period is two weeks, and students may renew materials as long as they are not on hold for another student. Checkout guidelines are listed below. Exceptions may be made when books are needed for classroom assignments or projects.

Kindergarten - 1 book

1st-4th - 2 books

5th - 3 books

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 attempt to repair damage to a book - the library has the tools and materials best suited for repairs.

We work with students on developing skills to choose books that are right for them. This can often be a series of trial and error, and every child and family are different.  If you have preferences regarding the books your child is checking out, please start by discussing these with your child. We are happy to assist in guiding children to books as well.
