The library at LMS is open to all students and parents for check-out privileges. Every class at LMS comes to the library twice a week for 30 minutes at a time. They will come once for checkout and once for library lessons/storytime. Your child’s checkout day will be the same every week.
This year we will also have a daily open check-out time from 7:55-8:10. This will allow our avid readers at LMS to come DAILY for new books. It will also allow your child to turn books in any day, especially if they forgot to turn their book in on their checkout day. Students will be allowed fewer books at a time than as in the past, but with a daily open check-out time, remember they can return books and check out books everyday.
We have talked a great deal about taking care of our library books during our library lessons. Please help to reinforce the following behaviors with our books at home that we have talked about in class:
- Reading with clean hands.
- No eating or drinking around our books.
- Always use a bookmark.
- Leaving our books in our backpack when it is not being read, so it is ready for checkout day.
- Finding a comfy spot to sit and enjoy our new books!
AR Reminder:For 2nd-5th grade students and parents, the AR HomeConnect URL is https://Hosted66.renlearn.com/83533/HomeConnect. Your child can tell you his or her user name and password to enter HomeConnect online to check AR progress of the student. The AR program is a classroom-based reading incentive program, which the LMS Librarian facilitates by performing collection development in a way that insures the selection and purchase of great AR fiction books. Please contact your child’s classroom teacher for questions concerning the AR program at LMS.
