Welcome to the school library at Webster! The Webster School library program goal is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information and to empower students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, ethical users of information, and productive users of technology.
Hours of Operation: The media center is open for students to visit with their scheduled classes as well as with a pass from their teacher. The library opens at 8:00 each morning and closes at 2:45 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. It is open from 8:00-1:45 on Wednesday. Students must bring a library hall pass with them to visit the library.
Kindergarten and first grade students may check out one book at a time.
Second and third grade students may check out two books at a time. At least one book should be on their reading level.
Fourth and fifth grade students may check out three books at a time. At least one book should be on their reading level and one book should be a nonfiction book unless otherwise specified by their teacher.
Books are checked out for two weeks. Students may renew books in the library.
Lost/Overdue Items: If an item is overdue, nothing else can be checked out until the item is returned. If the item stays out for a considerable amount of time, library staff will contact parents. If an item is returned significantly damaged, library staff will send home a notice with the cost of the book. Students will not be eligible to attend the AVID Celebration at the end of each quarter if they have overdue or lost books.
Behavior Policy: The behavior policy enforced in the media center is based on school-wide expectations. We also encourage students to be respectful of library materials and equipment as well as other students using the media center.

Hilaree Hudson, Library Media Specialist
I am excited to be your library media specialist at Webster! I received my masters in Library and Information Science from the University of South Carolina in 2010 and have been at Webster since April 2015. Before I moved to St. Augustine, I was a teacher and library media specialist in Hartwell, Georgia. I am a member of the Florida Association for Media in Education and the American Library Association. Some of my favorite authors and illustrators are Jon Scieszka, Sharon Creech, and Mo Willems.
