    Student Responsibilites

    When a student borrows a library book, he/she is expected to take care of the book and return it on time. Books should be kept in a safe place, away from babies, toddlers, pets, food and drinks. Pages are to be turned with care and bookmarks used to save a place. Students will be charged a replacement cost fine if a book is damaged beyond repair or lost.

    Check-out Policies

    Loan period: 2 weeks

    Book allowance:

    PreK, Kindergarten and 1st grade: 1 book after orientation
    Grades 2-5: 2 books 

    There are no overdue fines, but students with overdue books or lost/damaged fines may not check out additional materials until the books are returned or paid.

    Battle of the Books

    Students in Grades 3-5 are encouraged to participate in the Battle of the Books. This program uses the fifteen Sunshine State Young Reader's Award titles. Students must read at least 5 books from the list in order to participate in the qualifying test in the spring. Class teams are chosen according to the highest scores, and the school "battle" is conducted like a quiz bowl. The winning team goes to a regional contest.
