Library Mission:
The mission of the SBCISD Library Services is to collaborate in providing our students a quality education, to empower them to become critical thinkers, and to foster in them a lifetime joy of reading by supporting curriculum, providing a collection reflective of our community, and facilitating the access, evaluation, and implementation of print and digital resources.
 
Information About Book Check-In/Out:
All students are eligible to check out books -
  • Pre-K / Kinder / 1st Grades
    • Books will be pre-selected for students based on their AR Reading Level.
  • 2nd / 3rd / 4th / 5th Grades
    • Students are able to check out two (2) books and take them home, but they must remember to return them.
 
Students may check-in/out books at any given time as long as the librarian is present.
 
Should parents wish for their child to check out more books, I will be more than happy to create a parent account for them in the library.  With the parent account, parents will be able to check out a total of five (5) books, as well as take home those books.
 
Students and/or parents will have to pay for any damaged and/or lost library items.
