My goal is to introduce your child to the wonders of the LIBRARY and to encourage an early love for reading. I am originally from Ohio and graduated from Ohio University in 2005. My husband and I have two daughters and reside in Brownsburg. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family, travel, and READ (of course!).Media Center ScheduleClasses will visit the Media Center during their specials time Monday-Friday for a 9 week quarter rotation.Quarter 1 (7/29-9/25): Quarter 2 (9/28-12/18): Quarter 3(1/5-3/12): Quarter 4 (3/15-5/27):McKibban (4)Sloan (K)Allspaw (2)Each day will have a different theme:Monday- Multicultural MondayTuesday- STEM/STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, (Art), Math) DayWednesday- Library Day (books are returned and check-out)Thursday- Computer LabFriday- FUN Friday!Check Out Procedures
- Students may check out two books per week. They may check out additional books for any classroom project (up to four books on account)
- Kindergarten students may check out one book per week for the first 2 weeks. Once they are used to check in and check out procedures, they may check out two books.
- Students are expected to return their library books on Wednesdays. They are allowed to renew their books, as long as another student has not requested the book. Returned books will be isolated in a sealed tote for 72 hours before checked in and returned to the shelf for circulation.
- Please help your child keep track of their library books. They can return them to their backpack when they are done reading them at home or have a special bookshelf for them. I depend on parents to help teach their child how to take good care of books, so we all can enjoy them.
