Green Mountain Library 2021

Welcome to IN PERSON LEARNING here at Green Mountain! We are so excited to see our students here again!

My name is Ms. Byers and I am our Green Mountain School Librarian.  Although I manage the school library, I could not do it without the assistance of my wonderful library clerk, Ms. Rachel.  We work together to provide a comfortable setting that fosters and supports the reading development of our Green Mountain students.  We have so many wonderful books in our collection, and we are working hard to make those books available to our students. 

In the next couple weeks your student will choose and check out their first library book at school.  In the library we will review some basic book care guidelines, but you can reinforce these by watching the video I am going to include on our Library GOOGLE CLASSROOM (Your student can join the classroom by using this class code: ewstywg). 

 Here is a quick recap: 

  1. Keep your books in a safe place (maybe on a bookshelf, in a backpack or special bin).

  2. Keep books away from pets.  (It is ok to read to them, but you would be surprised how many books get eaten by pets each year!!)

  3. Don’t eat or drink while you are reading your library books.  Make sure your hands are clean.

  4. Handle books carefully.

  5. Return books in a timely manner.  We usually allow students to keep a book for one week, but students can renew books if needed - just let me know if this is needed.  As long as books are returned, a new book can be checked out each week.

Reminder, please remember to bring back any library materials that your child had checked out to them last year. If you have been notified of a fine, but have the book or material, please bring it back to school and we will take care of it. If your child has a school district chromebook checked out to them, these are required to be returned to school for use here. Please send it to school with your child as soon as possible. 

Please know that we are here to do all we can to make this year the most positive experience possible.  Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions.

Let's have an amazing school year of reading and sharing books!

Ms. Byers
