Library

The Elementary library collection contains approximately 30,000 materials.

Borrowing Procedures

Students in grades 2-5 visit the library with their class once each six-day cycle for a lesson and book selection. Students in grades K-1 visit the library with their class at scheduled times with their class for book selection.  Students may borrow two books during their visit if they do not have any overdue books. Students with one overdue book may still borrow one book. 

Books are due the next class visit and may be returned or renewed. Overdue notices are distributed on a regular basis to remind students of books that must be returned. Students are not charged fines for overdue library books.                                           

Lost & Damaged Books

We ask that students please notify the library if they notice loose or torn pages in a book. This is normal wear and tear, and if repaired promptly, the book may continue to be circulated in the library.  It is important that books are kept in a safe place at home away from young children and pets. To avoid water damage, we suggest that students keep their library books away from water bottles.  If carried in a backpack, it is advisable to keep library books in a plastic bag to protect them from water damage.  

Please be advised that students are responsible for paying the replacement cost of any book that is lost or damaged beyond repair. A "bill" is sent home with the student, and a receipt is provided when payment is received.  Payment may be made by cash or check. Checks should be made out to the Derry Township School District.
