• Procedures
    Passes
    Students visiting the LMC must have a pass, and need to sign in and sign out.
    Students visiting the LMC during lunch recess must obtain a pass from their teacher in advance.

    Students sent to the LMC on a pass must be able to do their work independently if there is a scheduled class at that time. If the Library Clerk is occupied with another class, students may be asked to return at a more convenient time.

    Circulation
    Kindergarten: 1 book for 1 weeks
    1st grade: 1 book for 1 weeks (2 books for 2 weeks when teacher feels they are ready)
    2nd - 6th grade: 2 books for 2 weeks

    Reference materials are for use in the LMC, and are not to be checked out.
    Overdue books must be returned before LMC privileges are reinstated.

    It is suggested to students that books be kept in backpacks when not being read. This will allow students to have their books when it’s their day to visit the LMC and to protect them from harm. Please be mindful of water bottles placed in backpacks. This can quickly ruin books! Always use the outside holders.

    Fines
    There are no fines charged for overdue books. Students are responsible for the books they check out. If a book is damaged or lost, the student will be asked to pay for the book. Until the book is paid for or returned, a student’s check out privileges are suspended. Charges can be paid in the form of cash or check. The care of books helps maintain our library collection for all of our students.

    Expectations for Student Behavior in LMC
    Library rules and behavior expectations for students will be introduced during the class’ first visit to the LMC of the school year, and re-iterated throughout the year.

    Students are expected to treat library items, i.e. books, furniture, etc. with respect.

    Students are expected to maintain a library atmosphere by entering the LMC quietly, using whispering voices during their visit.

    Once students have made their book selection, they may get in a single file line at the check-out desk. After check-out is complete, students may either take a seat on the chairs, couches or at one of the tables and wait for their teachers instructions to line up.

    Accessing the Collection and Student Account from Home
    Students and parents can access our Copper Creek collection from home by visiting InfoSearch. In addition to checking the availability of books and creating lists, students and parents can review a student’s account, including due dates of books on loan, overdue materials, and holds. Parent and students may access My Library Info by selecting the tab at the top of the screen and inputting the student’s Patron ID and last name.

    District-approved research: EBSCO

    Internet Usage
    Computers are available for student use during regularly scheduled class visits as well as for students on passes. They may be used for assigned class work, research, and testing. Students and parents/guardians must read and understand the Internet and E-mail User Agreement and both must sign the Acknowledgements and Verifications form before students are allowed to use the computers. Computers are monitored and privileges can be cancelled for violations of this agreement. The District offers students space on the server to save school projects; however, students must provide their own USB drive to save files for use elsewhere.
