BORROWING BOOKS FROM THE LIBRARY:
Murdock students have the opportunity to borrow books from the school library to bring home. We feel that borrowing library books is a valuable experience for children.
Since some children may not be ready for this responsibility, we request that parents sign a form giving permission (click here to view the form) for your child to borrow books from the library and that you assume responsibility for replacement/repair costs for books borrowed by your child in the event they are lost or damaged.
GUIDELINES FOR PARENTS:
Remember to keep library books in a safe place. They should be kept out of reach of younger children and pets. Please do not leave your book outside and be careful that lunch boxes or water bottles do not leak onto library books taken home in school backpacks. Books lost or damaged beyond repair must be replaced at the family's expense.
If a book is accidentally torn, please mark the place and return the book to the library to be repaired. Please do not try to make the repair at home.
Help your child remember to return borrowed books to the library by the due date. This will give others a chance to enjoy the book also. Library books are on a 1-week check out period and are due on your child's library day.
Discuss appropriate library behavior. The library is a quiet place. We do not want to disturb others. There will be rewards for appropriate behavior and consequences for inappropriate behavior. These rules will be discussed with your child at the beginning of the school year.
