About Heritage Library Media Services

At Heritage Elementary School, students visit the Library every four days to check out books. Kindergarten and First Grade can check out one book at a time, Second Grade can check out two, and Third through Fifth Grade can check out three. If students forget their books on check-out day, they are welcome to return them the next morning before school starts. They will then be able to choose new books to check out. Students can also come to the library during any library free time to return and check out books with their teachers approval.

We encourage students to follow their passions when it comes to checking out books for independent reading. Studies have consistently shown that students who read what they are interested in become better readers.

There are no overdue fines, however students will be restricted from checking out additional books until the overdue books are returned. If a book can't be found, we do ask that the family pays for the book. If a student loses a book, we will work with him and give him time to find it. If he can't find it, and there are extenuating circumstances, we can arrange a work/payback program to pay for the book so that he can begin checking out books again.

Parents are encouraged to contact the Principal or Library Paraprofessional if there are any questions or concerns about any aspect of the Library Program.
