Tusculum View Library
Check us out on Twitter to experience our exciting learning moments and library happenings!
Along with visiting the library to check out books each week, students will participate in activities that integrate science, history, world geography, and ELA. I will collaborate with your child’s teacher to provide enrichment lessons and we will work on research, technology, and writing skills. I look forward to helping your child develop a love of reading and experience the joy of memorable characters and places this year! You may see me around school taking photos and videos at our special events! This year we will have even more focus on internet safety, computer tips, and technology lessons, especially with our youngest students to help them learn new skills. I will communicate more information about library book expectations when students begin checking out books this year.
Mark your calendars! Our Book Fair Time Machine will be the week of February 26- March 5! This is always an exciting time and we hope you can visit! More information will go home closer to the date.
Our library’s other main fundraiser is our Birthday Book Club. More information about signing up for this exciting opportunity will go home in January. Our Birthday Book Club celebration last spring was canceled since we did not return after spring break. For those who purchased a Birthday Book last year, the bright, shiny new books and labels are waiting patiently in my office! I will make sure your child gets to choose and check out their book as soon as we can, and we will have a special pencil, bookmark, and free TCBY treat coupon to send home with their book. Kids LOVE helping choose a book to add to our library in honor of their birthday, and this helps add many exciting new books to our shelves! Thank you!
Library Book Expectations:
- Students may check out 1 library book at a time, and books are due 1 week from the checkout date.
- 2nd through 5th grade students may visit the library any time during the week with permission from their classroom teacher.
- We do not charge late fees, although students may lose privileges if books are continuously late. Students are encouraged to bring their book to library class so they may renew it if they are not finished reading. Every so often through the year, I will send home late book notices so that you can help your child find and return their missing book.
- For lost library books, a notice will be sent home that shows the amount to be paid before students may check out another book. If you pay the lost book fine and find the book later, you can return the book and receive a refund.
