Upper students (4th - 6th) come to the library once every other week and are always welcome to choose up to two books. Due dates are always the day before they come to the library with their class for check-out. All students are encouraged to come to the library during morning recess or immediately after school if they want to exchange or return their book(s) before their next class check-out.
