Welcome to the School Library!
When school is in session, your child has an opportunity to visit the library weekly. Contact your child’s teacher to find out more about how their class will be using the library. Parents are welcome to come in and set up a library account and may check out up to six books at a time.
We have a two week loan period, but do not charge daily fines for late books. We do, however, charge fines for books that are lost or damaged: $15 per book that requires replacement. Ready to research? Stop by the library for information on accessing our online databases from your home computer.
Volunteering: When students return to school, we will post the library schedule. Parents and grandparents like to sign up to volunteer when their child's class visits the library. When FWISD allows volunteers in schools, we will definitely look forward to having your help. If you'd like to be put on a list to volunteer in the library during the 2020-2021 school year (if possible) please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
