Elementary School Library
The Grant Park Elementary School Library is open every school day from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Each class attends formal library/computer class at least once each week. The focus of the library/computer program is to encourage reading and research, while building basic skills in preparation for middle school and high school.
Students are allowed to check out one library book each day. Each child is allowed to have a maximum of three books checked out at any given time. The checkout period is two weeks. Students who have three books checked out will not be allowed to check out any more books until they have returned at least one book, unless a book is required for a classroom project. Students with overdue books may not be allowed to check out any more books until the overdue materials have been returned. The replacement cost for lost or severely damaged books is $20.
During computer classes, all elementary students are introduced to keyboarding and guided research skills appropriate to their age level. 2nd through 5th grade students use Bernie's Typing Travels to practice keyboarding skills.
