Our Learning Commons has a variety of spaces to promote large and small group learning as well as individual learning. We not only have an abundance of books, but we also have tables, couches, carpets and a quiet reading room. The reading room has benches and bean bag chairs for a very comfy, cozy quiet place to read.
Checking out books from our Learning Commons is a privilege and a vital part of the learning experience at Poplar Ridge School. Books also complement classroom instruction, research, and personal enjoyment.
Check out: Students are permitted to check out a maximum of two books at one time, with the exception of our Kindergarten students who are permitted to check out one book at a time.
Check out period: Books are checked out for a two week duration. Overdue notices will be sent home as a friendly reminder.
Lost or Damaged Books: Sometimes accidents happen. If a book is damaged, please return it to the school librarian. She will determine if the book needs to be replaced, or if it can be repaired, and assess the appropriate fines.
A notice will be sent home with the amount of the fine listed. The cost to replace the book will range from $5.00 - $15.00 for most paperbacks and $10.00 - $50.00 for most hardcover books. If paying the fine is a financial hardship, please contact the school to make arrangements.
In addition, if a student loses two books during a school year, they will be asked to keep their books at school until the lost books are cleared.
