Mountain Song’s Library
Our library is a labor of love and generosity here at Mountain Song. Many parent and staff volunteers have spent countless hours over the years helping to collect and catalogue books, and every book in our library has been donated by families and friends in our school community. We are always looking for donations of books, especially new hardback or good condition paperbacks of current children’s books. We never have enough of Harry Potter, Captain Underpants, Dork Diaries, Dogman, Choose Your Own Adventures, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Mo Willems, Magic Tree House, Geronimo Stilton, American Girl, Pete The Cat, Bad Kitty, any dinosaur book, and Rainbow Fairies. Just put your donations in the crate by the front door or bring them to the library.
Please encourage your children to be responsible users of the library. Children are not allowed in the library unless an adult is present. If you are supervising children in the library after school, please make sure they put books back exactly where they found them. They know how to use place-finder sticks to do this. Children may check out books only when the librarians are present on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday afternoons. Ask your students or their teachers when their scheduled library days are.
We need your help in making sure that children keep track of the books they borrow. Our policy this year is that children may check out two books at a time and keep them as long as they need, but that they must return the books in order to check out new ones. If a child loses a book, we will ask you to pay to replace the book, just as other libraries do.
If you are interested in volunteering in the library this year, please email Ms. Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is exciting to see our students using the library with gusto this year. They are READING!
