Library hours

The library is open Monday thru Friday from 7:30 to 3:30.
Teachers and parents are welcome to visit the library anytime during regular hours to checkout, renew or return library materials. 

Guidelines and Expectations

Library Expectation are: 
Do not run
Be calm- Relax, breath
Use inside quiet voices
Listen when teacher's are instructing
Show respect for others
Bring books back on time

No one has the right to interfere with the learning, safety or well being of others. This applies in the library as it does in any other area of the school. Library expectations include being respectful and responsible for their own behavior whether they are with their class, a small group or individually. This includes being respectful for library materials, including books and other library equipment and resources. 

Kindergarten and First Graders are allowed access to the library's entire fiction section. This section of library  is color coded in Red for easy to find books for our younger student's.  They are instructed in how books are arranged as well as assisted in book selection based on their needs and abilities. 

Second graders are allowed to check out two books from the library's fiction and non fiction picture book selection. As their reading ability increases students are also allowed to check out books from the easy reading chapter book selection. Students are instructed in choosing the right book for their level.  Chapter books may be renewed if a child is not finished reading the book.

Third through sixth graders are allowed to check out two books.

Parent's can come into the library and sign up for a library card and check out up to 10 books to read to their children at home. Please feel free to come in any time after 2:30 to set up a library account. 
It's a good idea to have a plan before reading to your children. The first thing you should plan for is how, where and when you will read to your child every day!

Our Library's purpose

The purpose of the Washington Elementary School Library is to support our students' education as lifelong learners and readers by putting resources in the hands of students and the school community, encouraging students to read, teaching the students the skills necessary to evaluate information, and encouraging student responsibility.
