Mission Statement

The mission of the Adams Elementary Library is to promote a love of reading in a warm and welcoming environment.  To achieve this mission, our library works to educate the whole child through supporting the school’s curriculum by collaborating with teachers, administrators, support staff, and parents.

Overview

Adams Elementary Media Center provides books for Kindergarten through Sixth Grade students.  The collection includes picture books, fiction and nonfiction books made available in hard bound and paperback form.  There is a selection of instructional videotapes, DVD and art prints available for teachers and staff.  Five Ipads are available for students and to search for library materials.  Responsibility for the selection of library materials has been designated to the school’s librarian.  Any requests by teachers and students are filled by librarian if funding is available using the criteria below.

General Criteria for Selection

Materials selected for our library support curriculum, teachers’ needs, and students’ wants and needs.  Books are selected after researching award winning lists, book reviews, book discussions and general needs of students and faculty.

Criteria for Specific Book Areas

All level and types of books are considered carefully before purchases are made.  Criteria for choosing a book is as follows:  teacher requests, developmental maturity level, curriculum needs, binding, replace outdated/lost or damaged materials, and generally meeting the needs of children on all levels of diversity.

Check In Check Out

Students have the opportunity to check in and out books during their weekly library class visit.  They are also invited to come before and after school to check in and out books. First Graders are allowed to check out one book at a time, and Second through Sixth Graders are allowed to check out two books at a time.

Open Library hours are as follows:  Monday – Friday 8:30-8:50   Monday – Thursday 3:25 – 4:00

E Books and Audio Books are available for check out through the Overdrive system on our Destiny Library web page.
All books are automatically returned within 14 days. 

Lost or Damaged Books

A lost or damaged book is to be paid in full plus a $2 processing fee to the school secretary. If the book is found within 30 days, Davis School District rules allow a refund within 30 days of the fine being paid.  Students are allowed to check out one book until fee is paid in order to replace book.

Gifts/Donations

Materials donated to the library are welcome and accepted.  If donated materials cannot replace worn copies or become an addition to the library’s collection, they are offered to teachers for classroom collections or sold at a school book sale. 

Evaluation of Collection

Using our Destiny Media Computer Program, reports can be obtained to define age and use of books.  Discarding occurs when books have been well loved and are replaced based upon present check out statistics.  When aligning books to the Davis Desk, teachers are consulted in addition to a variety of librarian resources. 

 Acquisition Guidelines

Books are purchased from District approved vendors.  We earn many books from our Scholastic Book Fair thanks to the support of our student body and their families.

Selection Criteria for Audiovisual and Electronic

Safari Montage and Pioneer online provide our faculty with most of the audiovisuals they need. 

Selection Criteria for Periodicals

We do not purchase periodicals.

Weeding

Library materials are removed from the collection when outdated, worn or rarely used by students and faculty.  Materials with invalid information or are heavily worn will be recycled.  If materials are in good shape they are stamped “DISCARDED” and made ready for classroom collections or book sale.  A full library inventory is completed at the end of each year.

Reconsideration of Materials

Under District Policy 11/R-107 recognizing Constitutional Freedoms in Public Schools states; “A parent desiring to restrict their own child’s access to specific library books or materials shall submit the request in writing to the library professional at the school the child is attending.”  No parent has the right to make that decision for students other than their own. In most cases, a discussion with the school librarian can resolve any problems or questions that might arise regarding books and criteria.

Library Advisory/Collection Evaluation Committee

This committee exists to provide input, promote library programs, uphold/approve policies, and assist in reconsideration of any library materials in question.  It consists of an odd number of voting members not less than five and may include an administrator, a department chair or grade level teacher, a parent representative, and a student representative where appropriate.  The school library media specialist is a voting member and chair of the committee.

Volunteers

Parent volunteers are welcome and scheduled at the first of the year to weekly assist with their student’s class. 

Computer Access

Students have access to five library Ipads in which to search out books.  In accordance with the district technology agreement, the use of technology resources is a privilege, not a right. Inappropriate use of these resources may result in disciplinary action (including the possibility of suspension or expulsion), and/or referral to legal authorities. The principal, teacher/supervisor or systems administrator may limit, suspend or revoke access to technology resources at any time.
