Checkout at Longfellow
At Longfellow we strive to have checkout be a pleasant experience for your child. The ultimate goal of the library program is to foster a love of books, reading, and learning. We work in conjunction with classroom teachers to assure that all students select most of their books at the "just right" or "good fit" reading level for them. Other books can be what we call "vacation" (too easy) or "dream" (too hard) books.
The circulation period at Longfellow is two weeks. As long as no one has a hold on a book, students are allowed to renew materials. If students have overdue books they are not generally allowed to check out more until they return.
The circulation limits each class are as follows:
- Kindergarten: 2 books
- 1st-2nd grades: 4 books
- 3rd-6th grades: 4 books for self + 1 book buddy book
