Longfellow Panthers love to read! The school library program serves to instill a love of reading, inspire life-long learning, and foster independent library use.

The library is a great place to volunteer! There are always books to re-shelf and other projects to help with. Drop-in or sign up for a regular time! Even a few minutes can make a big difference! Thank you.

Nooks are available for students in grades 4 – 6. The NOOK user agreement Policy must be filled out, signed, and returned to Mrs. Hansen. NOOKs are to stay at school and are not allowed to go home.

Checkout Policy

All students kindergarten thru 6th grade may check out 2 books at a time. (Kindergarten starts with 1 until Thanksgiving Break)

Books are due 7 days after the checkout date.

Students may renew a book two times as long as they bring them to the library. We do not renew books that are not with the students, these are counted as overdue.

There are no late fines for books, however book notices are sent home with students who have missing books each week. After the book is over 3 weeks late a letter is added with payment or replacement options for lost or ruined books. Students may pay the replacement fee or purchase a replacement copy. If payment is not possible please speak with Mrs. Hansen about working off the fee. After paying or working off fees students who repeatedly lose or ruin books will be asked to keep their library books at school to be read in class.

Caring for Library Books

Here are some tips on caring for your library materials:

  • Keep food, drinks, babies, and pets away from your books.
  • Remember to wash your hands before reading a book.
  • Treat your books gently.
  • Report any book damage to the library staff so they may fix the book properly.
  • Use a bookmark for saving your place in a book. Do not fold the corners of the page or use a pencil to save your place.
  • Do not turn a book down on its “face” with the pages open
  • Keep your books dry at all times. Carry water bottles in a separate bag, far away from your books. On rainy days, be sure to put your books in a backpack and make sure your backpack stays dry and off the ground.
