Procedures and Schedule:


Students will have the opportunity to visit the Library during their subject area classes at the classroom teacher’s discretion. When visiting during class time, students may be given parameters as to whether they choose fiction or nonfiction books, or they may be assigned a certain topic or activity related to classroom objectives. 


Additionally, students may visit the library during their WIN period. At this time, students may use the Makerspace if they have no missing assignments. Students visiting during WIN are free to check out any titles they would like. Students may check out up to five books at one time. Books may be renewed multiple times; unless the book has been placed on hold by another student.


Teachers may check out up to 100 books.


Check Out Duration:


The checkout period for students is three weeks. The checkout period for teachers is 190 days.


Late Returns:


Students will be fined five cents a day for turning in books late. Students will receive an email reminder to return overdue books. Books overdue for more than 1/2 a year will be considered lost.


Damaged and Lost Materials:


If students misplace a library book, or a book is damaged beyond repair, as determined by the school, we ask that the family please replace the book or pay the value of the book. The replacement needs to be the same title in new or like new condition so that it can be returned to the shelves for circulation. We will work with individual families in these situations to ensure that there is no disruption in their child’s access to borrowing books from our library.

The mission of the EPMS school library program is to provide an inviting and dynamic learning environment that supports and enhances teaching, literacy, and learning to develop an appreciation for literature and a love of reading into adulthood by using a variety of resources.


Vision Statement:

We encourage students to continue learning throughout their lives, to become ethical users of information, to appreciate diversity, and to develop a tolerance for differing points of view so curiosity drives our students to become life-long learners.
