Policies and Guidelines

  • Scheduling - Each class will be assigned a 30 minute time slot in the library for instruction and book checkout. 
  • Open Library - The library is open for book exchange twice a day, from 9 -11 and 3:00 - 3:25.
  • Book  Check Out Limits - Kindergarten student will begin checking books out around the beginning of the new calendar year, and will check out one book that will remain in their classroom. 1st - 3rd grade students may check out 2 books, and 4th - 6th grade students may check out 3 books.
  • Book Care -  Students are responsible for lost or damaged books.  Any damaged books should be brought to Mrs. Harris for care.  Please do not attempt to tape, glue or repair the library books on your own.  Books that are lost or are too damaged to be repaired need to be paid for in the office.
  • Behavior - All students are taught library expectations.  Expectations include: quiet voices, proper care of books, and being respectful to others. We also follow all school rules: Be kind, Be safe, Be responsible, Be respectful.  I use a 3 strike system in the library for students who don't follow expectations. The 1st strike is a warning, the 2nd strike is a one minute time out to think about changing the behavior, and the 3rd strike takes away book check out privileges for the day. 
  • Computer Access - Computers in the library may only be used to search the library catalog.  Students will lose library computer privileges if not adhering to the District Acceptable Use Agreement.
  • Book Selection - Books selected for the library will support the curriculum and recreational needs of the students. Requests from students and teachers will be considered.
  • Donations - Donations to the library are welcome and will be placed in circulation if they meet the circulation criteria.
  • Weeding - In order to maintain an up to date collection, all materials will be evaluated for weeding. Materials will be removed from the collection for being outdated, inaccurate, damaged, duplicate, unused or no longer part of the curriculum.
  • Inventory - To help maintain a timely collection and aid in material selection, an inventory will be completed yearly.
  • Challenged Library Materials - Issues concerning library materials can most often be resolved by meeting with the school librarian.  Policy forms for Challenged Library Materials can be found at http://davis.k12.ut.us/Page/46
  • Library Advisory Committee - The LAC will provide input, promote library programs and may assist in challenges to library materials. The committee will meet at least once a year.
  • Collection Evaluation Committee - The CEC will respond to challenges to library materials. The Librarian Teacher will chair the committee and be a voting member.
