Media Center Policies

Reading is one of the most important skills your child/children will learn in school. Like all skills, improvement comes with practice, and the Forsyth Woods Elementary School Media Center provides a wide variety of books for students to borrow for reading practice, information, and enjoyment. 

Your students' class will visit the school library bi-weekly to select books. In-between class visits, students can come to the library before school, during free periods, and by special arrangement to return and checkout books. You can help your student/students by reading to or with him/her and asking questions about the story. Encourage your child/children to spend time reading at home every day.

Students are responsible for handling library books with care, since they are for everyone to share. Please keep books away from pets, food, and all liquids. Students in VPK through 2nd Grade may be asked to keep library books in their classrooms. Older students will work with their teachers to determine how books will be handled. Students in 2nd through 5th grade will be allowed to check out 2 books. One book should be on their reading level, the second book may be a choice.

Any book damage should be reported to the media center as soon as possible, so we can attempt repairs. If a book is lost or severely damaged, payment toward a replacement will be requested from the parents/guardians. Fees may be paid via SchoolPay.

We hope your student/students will read and enjoy many books and grow in reading skills while attending our school :)
