The mission of Calvary's library is to promote a lifetime love of reading and to support classroom learning. Students from Kinder to eighth grade visit Calvary's library once a week with their classes. Students are encouraged to find books of interest in their reading levels in order to meet their AR goals. The library is equipped with iPads for researching and taking AR quizzes.
Students may check out four books at a time. (Additional books may be checked out for projects or reports.)
Books are loaned out for 14 days at a time. If a student needs additional time, he/she must take the book to the library to get a one time renewal.
Late fines are 10 cents per day for each book. Notices of late books and/or fines are sent home weekly. Library fines should be paid in the library upon receipt of fine notice.
If a student accrues excessive fines, library privileges may be suspended until account is cleared. Students who have four late and outstanding items will not be allowed to check out any further books regardless of the fine amount.
Did You Know?
We have AR quizzes for books of the Bible. Once a student has read and understands a book of the Bible, they are allowed to take the AR quiz for it.
The library hosts a Scholastic book fair every year to help support our library.
