Dear Kindergarten Parents,


    Your child will be bringing home a book from our school library today for the first time. We have discussed guidelines for library book use. They include:


    *Finding a special place to keep your library book so it does not get lost. ( I suggest their backpack)

    *Protecting your library book from pets, younger brothers and sisters, and

    the weather…your backpack or classroom is the safest place.

              *Letting the librarian repair damaged or torn pages in a library book

              *Remembering to return your library book on time


    With the exception of special circumstances such as book fairs, the kindergartners will have an opportunity to check out one book when they visit the library. Your child must return his/her library book before another book can be checked out. Please help your child remember to keep their library book in their backpack or in a special container their teacher may have in the classroom.


    There are no fines for overdue books. However, if a book is severely damaged or lost, you will be asked to pay the replacement cost of that book.


    Thank you for your support and assistance. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.


    Happy Reading!
