Welcome to the Media Center at Webster! A Media Center is wonderful learning space that is made up of a library, computer lab, and Makerspace. 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 during the school day. The library opens at 8:55 am each morning and closes at 2:40 pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Wednesdays, the library closes at 1:40.
Pre-K students do not check-out library books. Kindergarten students are permitted to check-out books after the first Semester. First grade students may check out one book at a time. Beginning in second grade students may take their library books home with them. Second grader may check out 2 books, Third grade 3 books, Fourth grade 4 books, and Fifth grade 5 books. At least one book should be on their reading level. Students are reminded that they are solely responsible for the care and return of their library books.
Books are checked out for two weeks. Students may renew books in the library as needed.
Overdue / Lost Items
If an item is overdue, no new books 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, or said to be lost, library staff will send home a notice with the cost of the book.
The behavior policy enforced in the media center is based on school-wide R.O.A.R. expectations. We also encourage students to be respectful of library materials and equipment, as well as other students using the media center.
Grades 2-5 students will have the opportunity to continue using Accelerated Reader (AR) to select books on their reading level, read and take quizzes to check comprehension. Students have the opportunity to earn prizes for passing quizzes and reading their individual goals.
