MENTORS AND VOLUNTEERS

website picture19

Allen Community College students may be a mentor as part of their work-study program. Mentors read books to our first-grade students, help them take Accelerated Reader quizzes, and shelve books during their class block. Our mentors are a vital part of our reading program!

Volunteers are always welcome in the library media center! Adults from the community read books and Accelerated Reader quizzes to our students. Volunteers are needed from 7:30-8:30 am on the day of their choice.

Our reading success is due in part to our mentors and volunteers!

CHECK OUT POLICY

book

Preschool students check out one book on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  They will transition to checking out two books at a time after they have demonstrated responsibility in returning one library book on time regularly.

Kindergarten, first and second students come on a daily basis with their teacher's permission to check out new books after taking their AR Quizzes.  Students in first and second grade may also check out books during their scheduled class library time each week.

Students who need to check out more books for a classroom assignment may exceed their limit of checkouts with permission.

Students with overdue books may not check out any more books until the item(s) have been returned or paid for.  If a book is lost or damaged beyond repair, students will need to pay for a library-bound replacement.

If a student pays for a lost book and then the book is returned, we will refund the payment.

There is a difference in library-bound books and the books that you can buy online or locally.  Library-bound books are made to last dozens of checkouts whereas a trade or paperback book is intended to be read just a few times.  Please do not try to find a cheaper book to replace a ruined library book.  They are not the same.  The replacement cost that is paid allows us to replace the damaged or lost copy with a library-bound copy.  These books are also typically covered by a replacement guarantee whereby if the spine or cover wears out then the book company will replace it free of charge if it still in print.  This guarantee does not replace damaged books.
