Library Information

Library Classes:
All students come to the Green Meadow Library once a week. Classes consist of a 30 minute  literacy or technology lesson and 15 minutes of book check-out time. 3rd grade students also have a technology lesson every Friday.
 
Book Borrowing  at Green Meadow:
Kindergarten and 1st grade students may check out one book. 
2nd grade students may check out one book until they start Reading Counts, at which point they may choose a second book.
3rd grade students may check out two books.  
Spanish Immersion: 1st, 2nd & 3rd grade students may also choose a book written in Spanish. 

The book check-out period is 2 weeks. Overdue notices will be sent to the student when a book becomes overdue. No money is due when an overdue notice is sent. If a book is not returned after 3 overdue notices have been sent, a letter will be sent home to the parent to alert them of the situation. If the book is lost or damaged, a student must pay for the book before they may check out a new book. If the book is later found and returned in good condition, the fine will be returned.
Kindergarten students keep their book in their classroom until Christmas vacation. After lessons on taking care of library books and having a special place to keep them, they may choose to bring their book home to share with family.

Book Fairs  at Green Meadow:
Book fairs are held twice a year. The book fair in the fall at Back To School Curriculum Night is for parents only. The book fair in the spring is held for one week and all students come during their regularly scheduled class time. The book fair is also open during the Spring Open House and all are welcome. All profit from the book fair is used to purchase new books for  the library.

Volunteering
If you can commit to 30 minutes or 1 hour of time once a week, the library would love to have you! Volunteers are needed to reshelve books, help children choose books during book check-out time, and help out at book fairs. If you are interested, please e-mail Mrs. Paisner at spaisner@maynard.k12.ma.us.   All volunteers require CORI checks. Thank you!
