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
    • Students are able to check out one (1) book, but books will remain in the classroom.
  • 1st / 2nd Grades
    • Students are able to check out two (2) books and take them home, but they must remember to return them.
  • 3rd / 4th / 5th Grades
    • Students are able to check out three (3) 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 more books for their child, as well as take home those books.
 
Students and/or parents will have to pay for any damaged and/or lost library items.
