Kays Creek Library Operational Guidelines

In our library we inquire, collaborate, critically think  and create information through the use of technology and ethical research practices. We use digital and print books from a diverse, engaging and relevant collection to develop lifelong readers and learners.


Hours 

     The Kay’s Creek Library is for student and faculty use. We are open during school hours from 8:45 am - 3:30 pm.

   ● All classes will have a scheduled time to visit the library.

   ● Students are able to come in and use the library for check in, check out, reading or makerspace activities at any time during the day with teacher permission.


Checking out  materials  

● Kindergarten- will check out two books per week to keep in their classroom. Kindergarteners do not take books home. 

● 1st grade may check out and take home one book at a time.

● 2nd Grade may check out and take home two books at a time.

● 3rd -6th Grade may check out and take home three books at a time. Books are checked out for 2 weeks. However students are encouraged to bring their books back each week and renew them if they have not finished. They may renew the books an indefinite number of times UNLESS another student has requested that title


Overdue, lost or damaged material

● Once a book is delinquent,  parent email reminders will be sent.  There are no fines for overdue books, however, students with late/missing books will not be allowed to continue to check out until overdue materials are returned or renewed.

● Payment is required for the loss or damage of a book, per district policy. The payment due will be the cost of the book at the time of acquisition, along with a two dollar processing fee. The school will not accept a copy of the lost book in exchange for payment. Payments can be made to the office, online, or to the library with a check.

If the book is found and returned within 60 days of the fine being paid, a refund will be issued.  Refunds can take a few weeks to receive. 

 


Holds

● 3rd-6th grade students may place up to two books on hold at a time. Students will be taught to access their account online for this procedure. Books will be held in the library until their next scheduled class library visit. The students may check the library for holds during open library. If the student doesn't pick up their hold at their next class visit the book will be given to the next student in line.


End of Year Book Return

● Two weeks before the end of school all books will be due and no books will be checked out.

● All books are to be accounted for by the students final visit the second to the last week of school.

● Any student that still has books out or has not paid for lost books will not be able to participate in field day


Collection Development Acquisition Policy

The aim of the Kay’s Creek Library is to have a current, engaging, relevant and diverse collection.

● First consideration is given to procuring titles that have proved popular with our student body.

● Second consideration is given to providing texts which will compliment each grades curriculum and core standards, along with striving to keep up to date informational materials as budget allows.

● There is also an effort to provide information on a wide variety of topics, which might be relevant to the ages and maturity levels of our students.

● We are also currently building our digital library through overdrive, consideration is given to books that have a digital format.


Requests

● Students and faculty may request books to be purchased for the library. Using the following form. REQUEST


Weeding and Inventory

 

  • The library collection will be inventoried at the end of each year.

  • Periodic evaluation of the of materials will be conducted in order to maintain an up to date, relevant, diverse collection. Books that are not circulating, are outdated or have inaccurate information, encourage stereotypes or biases will be removed from the collection. Per the Davis District Policy


    Donations

  • Donated materials may be considered  as long as they meet collection development standards and are in good condition.  

  • Donated material that does not fit standards will be used for student rewards or passed on to classrooms for use.

  • We are always in need of makerspace items, such as fabric, yarn, tools, sewing supplies, and craft supplies, 3d pens and filament, and sphero robots.


  • Makerspace

  •  

    Our school Makerspace is for 3-6th graders to use with permission from their teachers.

  • There are a variety of activities that are designed to encourage 21st Century learning skills such as inquiry, collaboration, communication and creativity.


    Parental Restrictions

  • Parents are encouraged to take an active interest in their child's reading materials.

  • Our library serves a broad age range.

  • Parents and students should realize that not every book in the library will be appropriate for each child in the school. If a title does not work for a particular student, they are encouraged to return it and find something that will fit better.

  • As stated in the District Library Policy, “A parent desiring to restrict their child’s access to specific library books or materials shall submit the request in writing to the library professional at the school the child is attending."


    Challenged Library Material

  •  

    Occasionally the content of library material may be questioned.

  • All concerns should be brought directly to the librarian’s attention in a timely manner.

  • Often parent concerns can be addressed by talking through our library policies and working with the librarian to restrict their own child’s access to specific library materials if needed.

  • If further action is desired, we will follow the district policy in place for formal reconsideration of library materials.


    Conduct

  • Each class will have a scheduled time in the library, in which they will check in and check out books and have a instruction focusing on library skills, research, digital literacy and media literacy.

  • The first 10 min are reserved for checking in and checking out books.  When students are done they will silent read until we are ready to start our instruction time.  

  • If students are not checking in a book the first 10 min of class will be devoted to silent reading.  They may bring a book from class to read or they may choose a picture book to read while they are in the library.

  • During the 15-20 min instruction time all students will be expected to pay attention and participate.  Students will use computers in the library for instruction and building presentations. 

  • Students will be expected to follow the acceptable use agreement when using computers in the library.


    Curriculum

  • The Davis District Desk Standards will be used for the curriculum.   Policy can be found in the library standards tab. The following apps will be used in instruction, flipgrid, adobe spark, sphero edu and DoInk.

Rock The Halls

Hats off to Reading

We rock the halls the 1st Friday of the month.  This year’s theme is Hats off to Reading.  We have several  hats to choose from, they will be cleaned in between uses,  however, we know some may have concerns about sharing hats.  Those who would like to may bring a hat from home. Hats brought from home can only be worn during Rock The Halls.  A special hat from vacation, their grandpa, or even made themselves.  

   Enter minutes online from home, at school, or at library time.  Students can also record minutes on paper and bring them into the library. They can also email totals to KaysCreekReads@gmail.com.  Cutoff is 9pm the Sunday at the beginning of the week of Rock the Halls.   Minute totals sent to parents for approval.  We are promoting reading not cheating. 

If you have a reader who needs a boost or has been working hard but not getting the minutes to Rock the Halls, please let me know we can celebrate them!  We want all readers who give it their all to feel successful. 

I know some older students may not think it is cool to rock the halls, but please encourage them.  This is the only time the younger grades get to do something cool with the older grades.  They are so excited and having the older students with them is huge. Oh, and there will be different music to mix it up!

Battle of the Books

books facing each other ready to battle

Davis Book Battles 

Battle of the books is a voluntary reading program for students in grades 3-6th. The purpose is to encourage students to read a variety of books of different genres and to have fun competing with their peers.

Students are required to read at least 5 books from a list of 20 books.  Students are encouraged to read as many from the list that they can. The more they read the more they will know when it comes time for battle. Students who read all 20 books will have their picture put on our Wall Of Fame. 

Each student will be put on a team of 4-5 students.  Each team will compete with other teams in their grade level during school battles.  There will be a winning team from each grade level that will move on to the district battle.

Starting in October, there will be  Battle Meetings right after school from 1:30 -2:00 pm on the first Friday of the month These meetings are not mandatory but give students a chance to practice battle questions, write in their booklets, collect pins, play games and have fun.  

School Battles will be in April during school.  The district battle will be the last Saturday in April at Snow Horse Elementary.

Birthday Book Club

Stars around Birthday Book club

Looking for the perfect gift for your reader?
I love having the privilege of celebrating birthdays with so many of our students.  It is an honor to spend part of  their special day together.  The school has asked treats not to be sent to school for students' birthdays, but there is a way to share a treat with the school and help our library grow!

A 10$ donation to the Birthday Book Club is a gift to share with the whole school.  Your reader will be able to choose a book from the Birthday Book Box, which is filled with some of the newest and most requested books.  A book plaque will be placed inside the book with the students first name, the month, and year it was donated.  A candle sticker put on the spine indicates it is Birthday Book Club book to students.  The chosen book will be presented during your student's class library period.  The special Birthday Book Song and Dance will be performed and a quick photo of your reader and the Birthday Book is snapped.  The birthday reader will be given a pin and be the first person to check out the book!  Their photo will be placed on the Birthday Book Club Wall.  At the end of the year their pictures will be placed inside the book.  Readers will enjoy this generous gift for years to come. Every time someone opens the book, they will know it was shared by your child! 

As a reminder i will send an email at the beginning of your student's birthday month, or 1/2 birthday for those who celebrate in June, July and August.  I look forward to celebrating your child's birthday with the school and watching our library grow.

Thank you and let me know if you have any questions. 

Thank you, Mrs Johnson
