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.
The library is open during school hours for students. In previous years, students and parents could visit the library at the beginning of the school day to check out books. This year, kindergarten students have morning theater in the library so not other students or parents are allowed. 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.
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 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. (first grade may be increased to two books).
- Second, third, fourth grade, and fifth students may check out two books per visit to the library.
