Welcome to the Walker School Library!
Hello, my name is Linda Lee. I have worked at Walker since February 2004 in different roles. However, my favorite by far is being our school's librarian! I have had the privilege for almost a decade now and I am SO excited to work with our student body and to share my love of reading with them and to encourage all to READ, READ, READ!
The Library is open every school day from 7:10a.m.-3:10p.m..
Students visit the Library once each week with their class. Library books are due back each class visit even if a student plans to renew their book. This will help students learn good habits and to be reponsible with their library books.
Kindergartners and first graders are allowed to check out one book at a time. Second grade through fifth grade students may check out two books each week. The loan period is one week, although students can renew books that require more time if the book is not on reserve for another patron. Students are encouraged to return or renew books often to avoid having overdue books.
Parents and guardians are invited to set up a patron account and use the library to check out books to be read with their children at home. Up to five books at a time can be checked out for a two-week loan period. Shared reading is a great way to develop a life-long love of books!!
Thank you in advance for helping your child(ren) to be a responsible library patron by keeping books safe from damage while on loan and returning books on time. We often talk about what it looks like to be respectful, responsible, safe and kind in the library, just like we practice these guidelines throughout our school campus and your child should be able to share them with you.
Important conversation to have at home: Our students vary in age, reading levels, and levels of maturity, and our library has a diversified collection of literature meant to meet the needs and interests of all our students. While our library is organized in a way that helps steer students toward books at their "just right" reading level, the personal interests of students play a large role in the choice of books students check out. If there is a subject matter that you prefer your child not read about, please have that conversation with him/her, so he/she may be prepared to choose books in keeping with your wishes.
