Library Procedures

Welcome to Pioneer Library. It is our hope that all students thoroughly enjoy their library time and develop a love for reading and hunger for more learning. Below are the library procedures. Happy reading! 


Open Library

  • Anytime the library is not in use by another class
  • AM & PM recess
    • Students should have a pass when visiting during class time.
  • Parents are always welcome. Please check-in at the office first.


How many books are my students checking out?

  • TK does not check out at this time.
  • Students in grades K-1 check out 1 book at a time
  • Students in grades 2-8 can check out up to 2 at a time
    • If students have an overdue/lost/damaged book, they may have checkout suspended until fine is paid or book is returned


Can my students take their book home?

  • Generally books will be kept in the classroom for grades K & 1st.
  • 2nd grade and older, it depends on the class, so please check with your child's teacher


How long can my students keep their book?

  • Checkout is for 1 week at a time.


My student wants to keep their book longer?

  • Students can renew books as long as no one else has a hold on it.
  • Books must be scanned in person (I need to physically see the book) or it will not be renewed.
  • Once the student has had the book for a month, I will ask them to finish and turn in before checking out more books.


Holds. How does that work?

  • If a student wants a book that is checked out to someone else, they can fill out a hold slip and it will be saved for them when the book is turned in.
  • Once the book is received, the student will receive a notice to pick it up.
  • Hold books must be checked out within 2 weeks or it will be returned to the shelf.


Birthday book.

  • The week of the student’s birthday, they can check out an extra book.
    • If checkout is suspended, they may not get a birthday book.
  • For students who celebrate their birthday in the summer, I will celebrate their birthday book on their 6-month birthday.
  • For students who celebrate their birthday during a holiday, their birthday book week will be after they return to school.


How do lost notices and things like that work?

  • Notices will be given to the teacher and they will pass out the notices to their students.
  • Checkout may be suspended until the book is returned or paid for.
    • Students will also have the option to “work” for the fine. Students will be told how often they have to work after talking to the library tech. Students will be working during their recess/lunch for the agreed upon days. Once they've completed their work, the fine will be forgiven and checkout resumes.
