*Kindergarten students may check out 1 book.
First grade will start the year checking out one book and then proceed to checking out two books after they have had practice in following library procedures.
Second grade students may check out 2 books. Once they have had the introduction lesson on magazines, they may check out 2 books plus a magazine.
Third, fourth, and fifth grade students may check out 3 books/magazines.
Students may check out an extra book for a teacher assigned project with the librarian's permission. The project book may be kept for one month. However, it must be returned prior to checking out another project book.
Fourth and fifth grade students may check out playaway books to listen to only after they have attended the playaway club training sessions and passed a test on responsibility. There are two parts to the responsibility test:
1. The need to return their practice playaway in good condition.
2. There is an actual test on the rules and procedures of the club.
*The check out period for a book is one week for parents, students, volunteers, and community members.
*Overdue notices will be printed and distributed on a regular basis. Notification of replacement cost will be sent home for materials that are claimed to be lost or damaged beyond repair. Money paid for damaged or lost materials will be deposited in the Lost/Damaged Book Account. A replacement copy will be purchased. If the exact book is no longer in print, a similar book will be purchased. If a lost book is found after payment is made, a refund can only be given if a replacement book has not been purchased.
*A book can be renewed when the student brings it back to the library to be rescanned. It may be kept for another week. EXCEPTION TO THE RULE: If a waiting list request has been placed on a book by another student, the book cannot be renewed.
Cedar Lane Library Mission Statement
Students are taught research skills so that they are able to access and use the information that they need. They are encouraged to enjoy the experience of reading through exposure to a variety of different materials, activities and genres. The library staff supports the faculty with the acquisition of information in order to provide resources for teaching and direct teaching support in collaborative lessons.
