The Park Meadows LMC collection consists of more than 10,000 items, available to students, staff and parents. Additionally, the LMC has 20 computers with Microsoft Office and access to the Internet. A Smartboard is available for use by staff members. The LMC is open daily from 8:00 AM for staff members and 8:30 AM for students. The LMC closes at 4:00 PM daily.
Children from kindergarten through the 6th grade may check out books as follows:
Books may be renewed once if there are no holds on the title. Students are required to renew the book on the due date. Library privileges are suspended until an overdue book is returned, renewed or paid for if lost or damaged.
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.
Please remember…, 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. The care of books helps maintain our library collection for all of our students.
Finally, if parents would like to limit the number of books their child can check out they may do so by contacting Stephanie Jorgensen, Library Media Center Clerk, at 623-445-4186 or via e-mail
