Rosa Guerrero Elementary School Library
Policies and Procedures
Class visits will be scheduled. We will be on a 3-week schedule – Library classes and checkout one week and scheduled book return/checkout on the other two weeks. Slots will be available for research, projects, and collaborations in the library. Students can come into the Library from 7:30 – 7:50 a.m. Teachers need to check their schedule to make sure they are not sending students to the Library during Library instructional time. The Library will be available for after-school checkout from 3:15 – 4:00 pm. Please do not send students to the library before the bell rings at the end of the day.
TEACHERS: Please sign up at least 24 hours in advance to use the library for research so that we can collaborate with you beforehand to make the most of these experiences with your students.
Library Circulation Procedures: When your class comes to the library, please have them line up at the circulation desk to return their books. As I check in each child’s book, I will ask them to place their books on the appropriate carts for shelving. Then they can begin looking for new books. During check out, please help maximize the value of your students’ library time by assisting in monitoring behavior and helping individual students select books.
Overdue notices will be sent out once a month and will be placed in the teachers’ boxes to be distributed to the students. The Guerrero Library will not charge overdue fines but will charge students for badly damaged or lost materials. Students with overdue materials will only be allowed to check out one library book until they return or pay for the overdue item.
If you need curriculum supporting materials, I can gather those for you. Just email or call to let me know what kinds of things you are looking for. I can also borrow items from other campuses through Inter Library Loan (ILL). If there is a particular title you would like to see added to the library or subject area for which the library needs more resources, please let me know. I will be ordering new materials in the near future.
So come see me! Let me know how I can help make this a wonderful year for you and our students!!
