welcome back to school

It's almost here, Eagles- the first day of school! I can't wait to see all of our returning students, and to meet our new ones as well. Orientations in the library will almost all take place during the first week of school. Students will be allowed to check out books during orientations after we review book care and how to check out a book.

PreK students check out one book for school use only. Kindergarten students check out one book and may take it home with them.

1st and 2nd grades may check out two books at a time. When they bring back one, they can check out another one. When they bring back two books, they can check out two more books.

3rd, 4th and 5th graders can all check out 3 books at a time. However many books they return, they may check out again.

Parents are welcome to get their own personal library account. They have unlimited checkout. They can send the books back with their student to school when they're done with the books.

There are no overdue book fees at Forest North. If you lose or damage a book though, we will need you to pay for a replacement. Lost or damaged books can be paid for by cash or a check made out to Forest North Library. Please include your phone number and a valid state ID number as well.

I can't wait to see you, Eagles!
