Thelma Jones Elementary Library Information & Book Checkout Policy

Library Hours:
Monday - Friday

Library Visits:
Every class visits our library weekly for instruction and check-out.  All students may have up to two books checked out at a time.  As special circumstances arise, some students may be able to have up to three books checked out at a time.  All books are checked out for one week, but may be renewed as needed.

Open Check Out Policy:
Our Open Check-Out Program allows 3rd and 4th grade students the flexibility to visit the library independently on a more frequent basis.  Students may utilize open check-out during regular library hours with teacher’s permission.
A Note For Parents:
Please help to ensure your child is a good library citizen by encouraging him/her to take excellent care of our books and return them on time.  Access to search for books in our Thelma Jones Library may be done by visiting Destiny Discover, which is linked on our Symbaloo above.
