Checkout Procedures===All Swift students K-6th grade visit the library once a week for 60 minutes.===
Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students take one book home each week, and it is due the following week. If a student forgets to return their book, they will be reminded to bring it back the following week.
Please know that Mr. Rogers is never angry or upset with a child if they forget their library book. This will probably happen to everyone at one time or another, and is not a reason for a student to be upset. Students are simply reminded to bring the book the following week so that they have the enjoyment and practice of selecting a new title.
After a few weeks of forgetting a book, a reminder notice will be sent home to make the family aware of what book has been taken home.
3rd - 8th grade students take home 2 library books every week (as needed). Students should be reading longer books that may take more than a week to finish. They are always able to switch books sooner if they need to, by coming to the library at the end of the day with a pass from their teacher.

Other information about book check-out:
  • If a book is lost or damaged beyond repair, please email Mr. Rogers using the link at the bottom of this page, or send a note to the library with your child. Mr. Rogers can then print out an overdue notice with a price for you to pay to replace the book. Once the book replacement cost is paid, the student will be able to check out more books. Cost for damaged books: $5. Cost for lost books: $10.
  • Because students are choosing books themselves, you may find that the book is too hard or too easy for your child. This should improve as we learn how to pick appropriate titles. Of course, if there is an issue with any selection please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Rogers.
  • 4th – 8th grade students are able to manage their accounts online and see what books they have checked out, renew books, or put books on hold. See Mr. Rogers for username and password if you’re interested in this!
