Students may visit the library with their classes or with a pass from their teacher.  When arriving to the library with passes, students must sign in at the counter.  When leaving the library, students should sign out and have their passes signed by Mrs. Flynn.

Students may use the library to:

1. Check out a book.  Books may be borrowed for 3 weeks.  The due date is stamped in the back of the book.  Students who return books late will be charged overdue fines.  If a book is lost or damaged, see Mrs. Flynn about replacement costs.

2.  Borrow books through inter-library loan.  See the Interlibrary Loan Policy below for more information.

3.  Use a computer to complete school assignments.

When visiting the library, students must act appropriately and remain on task, so as not to disturb others who are trying to work. 


Interlibrary Loan

book pile

Our school library is a member of RILINK (Rhode Island Library Information Network for Kids).  This membership entitles our students to borrow books from many school libraries throughout the state.  

Books borrowed through ILL are delivered to our school free of charge.  

Most libraries will allow our students to borrow the ILL book for three weeks.

Students may request one item at a time through ILL.  Upon its return, another ILL item may be requested.

If materials are lost or damaged, students may be charged a fee for replacement cost of the materials.

See Mrs. Flynn for any assistance.

As a member of the RILINK consortium, we follow the consortium-level Interlibrary Loan Policy that is posted on the RILINK website here:  RILINK Inter-Library Loan Policy
