St. John Catholic School Library
Katharine Kan, Librarian. email: email@example.com
Any student in gr. 6-8 who doesn't sign up for Library Book Club is still welcome to come in during morning break or right after school to borrow books. Parents are also welcome to come in to borrow books for themselves or their children.
As we look toward summer, please pay attention to these dates:
Last day to check out books: Fri. 5/19
Last day to return books: Fri. 5/26
All books must be returned by Fri. 5/26, including all overdue books. Any student who does not return all books by the final due date will receive a bill for the overdue book. Any outstanding bills for lost or damaged books must be paid by Wed. 5/31.
More students are returning books damaged by their pets (usually dogs). Parents, please help your children keep library books away from your pets that like to chew, tear, and otherwise destroy books.
Mrs. Kan will be offering Summer Check-outs for returning students in good standing (no overdue books or unpaid bills). The form will be going home this week. Please return the bottom portion of the page with your signature and your child's name and grade (if you have more than one child attending, please add all of your children's names and grades) by FRIDAY, MAY 26. Summer checkouts will start on Wednesday, May 31. Books will be due at the beginning of the 2017-18 school year.
Library cards - important research tools. Parents, please take your children to get library cards from the public library. Even if you never check out books, the card gives you access to FREE databases with excellent information for research. Students who have their cards will be able to access those databases from home and from school. Students should have their library card numbers written down so they may access databases from the school's computers. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! EVERY STUDENT SHOULD HAVE A LIBRARY CARD FROM OUR PUBLIC LIBRARY!
