Wow! We've gone from 1165 books out on Monday to just under 360 today. Many of the remaining items are checked out to teachers. However, we have approximately 100 students who STILL haven't returned their books.
Per school board policy, your report card will be held until you clear your account. This means you either return the book or pay for the lost/damaged item.
Additionally, you will not be able to check-out books when we return to school in August. If you are a fifth grader who thinks this doesn't apply to you...guess again. Mrs. Harris @ Pine Mountain will collect the book or monies owed before you are allowed to check out a book from PMMS Media Center. And she has some of the really cool books you guys have asked me for, but I didn't feel comfortable purchasing because they are more suited for a 5-8 audience rather than a K-5 audience.
Have a great summer!
Are you still holding on to that book because you love it so much you can't bear to send it back to the Media Center?
Please return your books. The Media Center's missing her books. The library looks forward to this time of the year where she can revisit with long, lost friends (ahem...books) and enjoys having her shelves overflowing with books.
Psst - we still over 800 items out - and those are the items we know about. We stayed open 1-1/2 weeks longer than usual this year so classes had access to library media materials. Please help us out by returning your books.
Hard to believe this school year is winding down.
Mrs. Spencer and I have completed a physical inventory of all items in the Media Center. Overdue notices were distributed to teachers. Items on that list are not in the library; however, we'll be happy to recheck the shelves upon request.
All student books are due back by May 8th. Please do your best to locate and and return your books to the Media Center. Any books not returned will result in the student's report card being held (per board policy).

A favorite read-a-loud from this year
Can you believe it? Today was our last day for formal lessons and check-out in the Media Center. Of course, we will still have various classes and groups using our space for instructional activities, but Mrs. Spencer and I must now turn our attention to inventory and closing down the library for this school year. We will miss our frequent visitors, but look forward to tidying up our space and processing the many new books we'll have waiting for you in August. ~ Mrs. Kent
