• 2016-2017 Chestnutwold Library Schedule / Guidelines / Login Info

    The Chestnutwold  library is a vibrant, active, and welcoming literature and information media center.
    Dear Students,
    If you are in 1st - 5th grade, you have library every week for 45 minutes. As a class, you will check out books and return or renew books on this day.
    If you are finished with a book before your next 45 minute class, you are always welcome to ask your teacher if you may come to the library on your own to make an exchange.
    PLUS, you have another library class for 30 minutes every other week, either A week or B week. You will be learning computer coding and other STEAM activities during these classes.
    If you are in kindergarten, you have a scheduled library class every other week for 30 minutes.

    Book Exchanges
    1st-5th grade students borrow two library materials at a time for their personal interest. These books need to be returned or brought into the library to be renewed every week. Additional books may be borrowed for book reports and assigned projects. If students in 1st-5th grades are finished with their books or magazines before their next scheduled class, they are always welcome to ask their teacher if they can come to the library on their own and exchange their books on any day.
    Kindergarten students borrow one book at a time for their personal interest.
    Responsibility for Resources
    Students are responsible for the materials they have borrowed. Materials should be brought into the library to be returned or renewed on the scheduled library day. Students are expected to pay for any materials lost or severely damaged. There are no late fees.
    Chestnutwold's school library supports the curriculum of our school district and the diverse reading interests of our students. Our mission is to develop a student-centered library media program that provides students with the ability to find, use, and evaluate information efficiently and effectively, thereby fostering life-long learning and to have a welcoming environment that creates a love of reading in all of our students.
