LMC Time and Book Checkout
Book checkout will take place each week during your child's scheduled LMC time.
Book Checkout, Return, and Renewals
All students are allowed to check out two books* from the library during checkout. Students are encouraged to check out at least one “just right book". This helps build vocabulary, fluency, and helps further develop independent reading skills.
Books may be kept for two weeks; students will just need to renew them if they would like to keep them longer. All students are encouraged to bring back their books on time so other students may enjoy them.
*4th graders are allowed to checkout three books.
Overdue notices are printed approximately every 2 weeks. If a book is 4 or more weeks overdue, you will receive a notice asking for the book to be returned or given the cost to replace the book. Students are not allowed to check out new materials until they have returned their overdue books. Please make every effort to find books that were checked out (and not yet returned) from your chiild's previous school year if they were at Roosevelt.
All students have learned "voice level" expectations in the library. See our poster below on voice level in the LMC. Expectations for our voices during LMC time are:
4 Outdoor Voice: This voice is never used in the library.
3 Presentation Voice: This voice is only used by a person or group reading or presenting to the class.
2 Partner Voice: This is our normal speaking voice and is used during activity time. Only the people close by can hear you.
1 Whisper Voice: Only one person can hear you.
0 Silent: No talking. This is the voice used during a read aloud.
