What to Expect in Library and Technology
We are excited to have your child(ren) in our library and technology classes! Here is a little information about what to expect. Please let us know if you have any questions at any time!
Students will come down to the library once a week for a combination class where they will check out books and work on a variety of technology skills. We will also work with them on integrated projects in their classrooms or in the technology lab.
When books are checked out, students may keep them for up to two weeks. If they would like to have them longer, they can recheck them out from the library for an additional 2 weeks. Sometimes books get damaged or lost. Don’t worry! Just let us know right away. Sometimes a damaged book can still be saved. However, if it can’t be saved, it is our district policy for families to replace lost or damaged books by paying for them. Also, if a book is not returned on time it is considered “overdue”. When students have an overdue book, they may look at books in the library until their overdue book has been returned or paid for. Please encourage your child(ren) to find a special spot for their library books at home to keep them safe. Students can also come down to the library at any time during their school day to check out books, as long as they have permission from their classroom teacher.
Harvey Oaks Book Club
Students will receive information about the Harvey Oaks Book Book Club after the first few weeks of school. All 4th and 5th grade students are invited to join!
Enjoy our awesome freshwater fish tanks as you visit us in the library! These were provided to us by the Harvey Oaks PTO and are taken care of by Mr. Joel Klemm. What a great addition to our fabulous library!
