Who Can Check Out Books?
At Lynn Wood all students may check out books. Kindergartners and 1st Graders are only allowed 1 book at a time. 2nd through 5th Graders are allowed 2 books at a time.
Books are checked out for a seven day period. If a student doesn't finish a book it may be rechecked.
We do not charge late fees, but students must pay for lost or damaged books. If a lost book is found, during the same school year, the money will be returned.
Students are allowed in the library from 8:40 AM until 3:40 PM, but they must have their teacher's permission and a library pass.
What is AR?
Accelerated Reader is a program that allows students to select books based upon their individualized reading levels. Each book is leveled according to a colored dot.
While we do have harder levels, starting about yellow, they may not be age appropriate for all readers. Some younger children read well for their age, but a book written with 4th or 5th grade student in mind, may not be suitable for younger readers and caution should be used when selecting these books.
