We look forward to seeing you in the library! Please remember...
Students should visit the library on a weekly basis.
Every class will go through orientation and will review the following commitments.
I will take care of my library book and return it within a week.
I will carry my book to and from school in my backpack.
I will read and talk about my book with a family member.
I can return my book early if I am done and have checked in with my classroom teacher.
The number of books I checkout is a conversation I have with my teacher, parents and librarians.
Mrs. Renaghan & Mrs. Gallagher are my librarians and will help me in the library.
I can visit the Hodgkins Public Library when school is closed and continue to checkout books.
Books are due 1 week from the date of book checkout. Weekends and holidays do not count.
No additional books may be checked out until all overdue items have been returned or paid for.
Overdue notices are sent out weekly.
Please let us know if you have any questions and/or concerns.
