Media Center Policies

Reading is one of the most important skills your child will learn in school. Like all skills, improvement comes with practice, and the Forsyth Woods Elementary School Library provides a wide variety of books for students to borrow for reading practice, information, and enjoyment. Your student’s class will visit the school library bi-weekly to select books. In between class visits, students can come to the library before school to return and checkout books. 

You can help your student by reading to or with him/her and asking questions about the story. Encourage your child to spend time reading at home every day.

Students are responsible to handle library books with care, since they are for everyone to share. Please keep books away from pets, food, and all liquids.

Any book damage should be reported to the library as soon as possible, so we can attempt repairs.

Library books may be kept for two weeks, then must be returned. A book may be renewed (checked out again) if the student is not finished reading it. An overdue (late) book means a student cannot borrow another book until the overdue book is renewed or returned. Students in grades K-1 may check out one book and students in grades 2 - 5 may check out two books.

If a book is lost, payment toward a replacement will be requested from the parents/guardians.

If your family plans to move from Forsyth Woods Elementary School, please return all books before moving.

We hope your student will read and enjoy many books and grow in reading skills while attending our school.
