I am the new Librarian/Media Specialist at Spring Meadows Elementary. After teacher for about 17 years, I decided to make a change and pursue my Master's in Library Science and Educational Technology. I am very happy to be a librarian to help students in their education in a new way.
The Spring Meadows Elementary library program is a place where students are empowered to be critical thinkers, effective and ethical users and producers of ideas and information, and lifelong readers and learners stemming from a love of books and other reading venues, in order for them to become productive citizens in a global society.
Policy and Procedures
The library is available to students during their Specials time once a week. Kinder students may check out 1 book. All other grades may check out 2 books for a period of up to 2 weeks.
If a book becomes lost or damaged, students must pay a replacement cost. Checkout privileges may be suspended until fines are paid. There are no fines for overdue books.
Students should follow classroom rules and behavior while in the library.
All books used by students will be isolated for five days before usage by another student. Common materials and surfaces will be wiped down with a sanitizing agent before reuse.
All library patrons will follow social distancing guidelines.
