       Lacy Library has designated time slots in every grade level (K-5) for each classroom (weekly) for the following: 

    • Open Access Computer Lab 
    • iPads/ Chromebook carts 
    • Storytime
    • Library Class time (check-in, check-out of materials) 

    It is extremely important to adhere to these times as a group so that the library/media can function as it is supposed to for the benefit of everyone.  If for any reason, this is not possible, students and staff may come in to the library freely from 8:10 - 8:25 and from 3:15 - 4:00.  In addition, students may also come to the library to read quietly,  participate in library quizzes & trivia, use technology for educational purposes only, and/or just need some down time to get away during the previously specified time slots also. 


    CHECK-IN Procedures

    As you enter the Lacy Library, return books in the "Library Book Return" slot or set books to be renewed on the circulation desk. 

    *Students may renew books once. 


    CHECK-OUT Procedures

    1st and 2nd grade students may check out ONE book each week during their Library Media time. Students MUST bring back the books within 7 days or students can renew books.

    3rd through 5th grade may check out TWO books each week during their Library Media time.  Students MUST bring back the borrowed books within 14 days.  Exceptions are provided for research projects per teacher request.

    *Students may recheck a book (up to 2 additional weeks), if the book has not been reserved for another student or teacher.

    *Students may request that 1 book be placed on hold if it isn't available at the time of check-out.  Once the book becomes available, student may check it out as long as the student does not have any outstanding book fines or overdue books. 


     Reference materials and BIG BOOKS are not available for check-out and must be used within the confines of the library media center. (Staff may check these items out). 


    Overdue Materials
    Students who have overdue materials may not check out other materials until the overdue materials are returned. Books not returned after 8 weeks will be considered lost and will be charged for the FULL replacement cost of the lost item.

    Lost, Damaged, Overdue Books

    • Lost Books­ - All lost books must be paid in FULL. 
    • Damaged books­ - A fine for half or up to the full cost of the replacement may incur if the book is not salvagable. 
    • When a student is charged for a lost or damaged book, the student may not check out any materials until the charges are cleared from their account.

    **I want all students to have the privilege of checking out books and reading them.  If you think you might have lost a book or are unsure of where it is, please come and speak with me and we will work something out together so that library book privileges are not lost.
