Policies and Procedures

Print Books: Kindergarten and first grade students may borrow 1 book for 2 weeks. Second & third grade students may borrow 2 books for 2 weeks. Fourth and fifth grade students may borrow three books for 2 weeks. Books may be renewed one time. Fines are assessed for lost or damaged books. Checkouts will be restricted until fines are paid or overdue books are returned.  If students have a late or overdue library book, no other printed books can be checked out until the overdue book is returned.

E-books: All students can check out one ebook for up to two weeks in addition to the number of printed book checkouts allowed for their grade level.  
You can watch this video to see how to check out an ebook. Thanks to Google for providing grant money so the school could purchase these ebooks.

Reading Goals:
Students are encouraged to read every day for at least 20 minutes and participate in Accelerated Reader testing at school. Each grade level sets their own reading and literacy goals that can be measured by the number of books or pages read and/or AR points earned. 

Parents can check student AR progress by going to Renaissance Place Home Connect and using the student AR login and password to see the student's account. Once a student is logged in to Renaissance Place Home Connect, other books in their reading zone are suggested. You can check and see if books you own or borrow from public libraries have an AR test by going to AR Book Find.
