Ms. Moore! That's me! (as I say at the end of the kindergarten name song each week).
I'm at Garden City Mondays, Tuesday afternoons, Wednesday mornings, and most of the day on Fridays. You can access our catalog and blog from the boxes below. Click on the tabs above for library lessons, access to e-books, and more.
Suggestions and comments are welcome. Email me at email@example.com.
Students have library class weekly for 35 minutes. We do a lesson or readaloud and activity and then have 10-15 minutes for checkout. The number of items a student may have out at any one time varies according to grade:
As the school year goes on and students demonstrate their ability to return books on time and in good condition, they may be able to take out more items at a time. Students in grades 2-5 may keep their items for up to three weeks, but can return them before that if they have finished.
Students, you are responsible for all items you check out. Please do not loan your library books to your friends! Lost or damaged books must be replaced, either with a new book or the cash equivalent (generally $10 for paperbacks and $20 for hardcovers).
If a teacher or student would like a book that we don't have at Garden City, they may take advantage of our Interlibrary Loan program, through which we can order materials from more than 160 other Rhode Island school libraries.
