Welcome to the Library

    Bearden Elementary is committed to providing a positive learning environment for students.  The library has a large collection of print and electronic resources for student, parent, and teacher use.

    Library Hours

    The library is open during school hours for students.  At the beginning of the school year, kindergarten students start their day in the library to make the transition easier.  Parents are welcome to volunteer in the library from 10:45-11:30 and after school most days.  The library is open to students and parents for check out after dismissal as long as no meetings are scheduled.

     Circulation Policy 


    All students are encouraged to check out books in the library.  With the privilege of checking out books comes the responsibility of taking care of the books and promptly returning them for use by others.  There are no fines for overdue books, but students must pay for damaged or lost books.  Students will not be given a final report card in May if money is owed for a lost or damaged book.  Students must return all books before checking out another book.

    • Kindergarten and first grade students may check out one book per visit to the library.  
    • Second, third, fourth grade, and fifth students may check out two books per visit to the library.
