This new book will include the donor's name, the student's name, and/or the special date on the bookplate created just for your celebration.

Playaways from the Marshall Library
The library has a collection of audio books called Playaways. These new devices are each loaded with a single popular title. They are about the size of an iPod, small enough to fit in a pocket or purse. You listen to them with headphones and control them with a few simple buttons on the back of the player. This means you don't need a computer, a CD player, an MP3 player or any other extra hardware to listen to an audio book. Playaways tend to be expensive so if you do not want your child to check one out please talk to him/her about this.
Fourth and fifth grade students may check out one playaway. The student can not have any over due items in order to check out a playaway.
One of the main goals of the library is to teach students how to use the resources available to them to locate accurate information. This process will follow them throughout their school years.
All of the classes have been to the library and had an orientation lesson and checked out books. During encore times kindergarten through second grade will be learning how to find a "good fit book" for pleasure reading. During encore time third through fifth grades will be learning how to use the library catalog and then locating the book on the library shelves.
The library hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Parents are invited to also check out books. Parents may check out books for a two week period of time.
Library books are checked out for ten days.
Kindergarten may check out one book.
First & Second Grades may check out two books.
Third through fifth graders may check out three books and a magazine (which is due back the next day).
Playaways (audio books) may be checked out by fourth and fifth graders. The Playaway is counted as a book. Some playaways are expensive so please encourage your student to be responsible for this item.
We do not charge for over due books. If a student has a late book,magazine or playaway, it needs to be returned before continuing check outs.
Any lost or damaged items need to be paid for in order to continue check outs. If you would like a little time to search for the book, send us a note or call us and we'll allow your student to continue to check out while you look.
Students are welcomed to return and check out books every day. The library has an opened door policy for students to check out books any time of the school day. The librarian and the teacher plan together lessons that are part of the grade level's curriculum.
