Learning Commons Policies

Our Learning Commons plans for a flexible schedule where multiple students can access it simultaneously throughout the instructional day. Mrs. Allen collaborates with teachers to ensure the use of library resources support ongoing classroom instruction and implementation of the state-adopted curriculum.

Weekly Checkout
Most classes come to the library once a week to check out new books. Kindergarteners may check out one book per week. Students in grades 1-5 may check out two books per week with an allowance for a third if it pertains to a school project. Books may be kept for two weeks.

Overdue Books
A book is considered overdue when it has been absent from the library for more than 14 days. If a student has an overdue book, they may not check out new items until the overdue book has been returned.

Lost/Damaged Books
If a book cannot be found, it is considered lost. A book is considered damaged if is returned in a worse condition than when it was checked out. The most common form of damage is torn pages, writing in the book, or water spills on the book. Lost and damaged books must be paid for. Mrs. Allen will send home a form indicating the cost of the book. Please send your payment to the school. Checks should be made out to PMES. If you send cash, please send the exact amount as no change can be given. If the lost book is found before the last day of the current school year, then a refund form will be sent home with the student.

Learning Commons Hours

The library is open daily from 7:15 to 2:45.

Book Request
Are you looking for a book and the library doesn't have it? Submit your requests to Mrs. Allen in person or by email.
