The librarian, Sarah Kern, is on site Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons and Friday mornings. The library is open  for scheduled classroom visits, and for grades 2-5 during lunch recess. View the current library schedule here.

Library Contract

Students are no longer required to have a signed contract to check out books. The same policies and procedures, however, still apply.

Check-Out Policies and Procedures

Each class will visit the library once per week at a scheduled time. The library will also be open to students in grades 2-5 during lunch recess.

Students in grades K-2  are allowed to check out one book at a time, and may bring them home if they choose to. Books are due at each weekly visit.

Third through fifth grade students may be allowed to check out up to three books at one time, and the books can be taken home.

All books must be returned, on time and in good condition, in order to check out new ones. Students are responsible for keeping books safe and clean, away from food, water, and possible damage. Lost or damaged books must be paid for or replaced. Overdue notices will be sent home periodically.


Volunteers are always needed to help shelve books before and after school and to assist with circulation during the school day. Please contact the librarian, Sarah Kern, if you can help.


We accept donations of used books in good, clean condition. Drop off in the library or in the office. See below to purchase a new book from the library wishlist.
