Purpose
We want students to form a love of reading early on that stays with them the rest of their lives. To accomplish this they need to read every day.  Students should be reading twenty minutes a day at the minimum.

Scheduling

  • The librarian blocks out time for no classes on Fridays, Open Library and no classes at the end of the day. Teachers select the library time that works best for their schedule. The schedule is submitted and approved by the principal each year.
  • Each class is assigned a fixed time in the library media center for instruction and book checkout.
  • Kindergarten will come every other week for thirty minutes.
  • First through sixth grade students receive thirty minutes of library media instruction per week.
  • If your class misses library due to holidays, parent teacher conferences, field trips, and assemblies, etc. class library time will not be re-scheduled. Please send your students to open library to exchange their books.
  • Library classes missed due to testing in the library will be re-scheduled if possible. If teachers can't find a time that works for their schedule and the librarians schedule students are welcome to come to open library to exchange their books.

Circulation

  • Kindergarten will start checking out books in January. They will start with paperbacks.
  • First grade may check out one book at a time and Second through Fifth grades may check out two books at time.  
  • Sixth grade can check out three books at a time.
  • Books are checked out for 7 days, after which they are overdue.
  • Students who have forgotten their library books or lost them after 3 weeks will not be able to check out any more books until they are returned or paid for.
  • All patrons must pay the replacement cost for lost or damaged library materials including a $2.00 processing fee. Patrons may not buy a book to replace the one that was lost or damaged.
  • Open Library is open every day. Students are encouraged to come everyday if they wish to exchange their books. 
  • The library is open for book exchanges at specified times each day as well as when no classes are in session.
  • Every student needs a library pass to attend open library.
  • You can't exchange books during the librarians lunch or at the end of the day when the librarian
  • is cleaning up the library.

Behavior

  • Good behavior is expected and will be rewarded on occasion with a book mark, pencil, and extra book coupon.
  • Students are expected to follow the rules: eyes on Mrs. Olney, ears listening, mouth quiet, and stay in your personal space invisible bubble.
  • Three strike rule: first strike: student gets a warning. Second strike: student is moved to another location in the library. Third strike: student is moved to a table with head down for the duration of their library time. The student will not be allowed to check out books that day or come to open library.
  • Flexible seating: the three strike rule does not apply to flexible seating. If not following the rules, Mrs. Olney will have the student move to a new seat.

Selection

  • Materials are chosen for their accuracy, timeliness, and provision of balanced views.
  • Materials will meet the maturity/developmental level of students and will provide for the younger as well as the more mature readers. 
  • Books are selected from the Davis School Districts approved vendors.
  • The principal approves all purchases made by the librarian.
