Greenman Elementary Library Policies

NUMBER OF BOOKS EACH STUDENT IS ALLOWED TO CHECK OUT


Kindergarten - 1
First Grade - 1 or 2 (teacher discretion)
Second Grade - 2
Third Grade - 3Fourth Grade - 3
Fifth Grade - 3

If you think your child returned a book, please have your child ask us to double check.  If we still can't find it, then they need to keep looking at home and at school.

  • All books are due 2 weeks after checkout. The card in the pocket tells what day of the month the book is due.
  • Books must be returned to the Return Box outside the library or to the library basket in the classroom.
  • If a book is overdue, the student is unable to checkout another book until the book is returned. (We do not charge fines for overdue books.)
  • If a student loses or damages a book, the student is unable to checkout another book until the book is paid for.  (If they find the book, you get all your $ back.)
  • If a student is unable to checkout a book due to an overdue, lost, or damaged book, the student will still be able to get a book from our Adopt-A-Book collection. 
     

Ebooks are Here!

Before you access the SD129 OverDrive ebook site and download ebook content, you will need to have an email address, and you will need to have access to a computer and web browser (to read titles online), or you will need a smartphone, tablet, or other device that can download free reading apps.

All of the software is FREE!  However, what software you need depends upon which formats you want to access.  You can find videos showing you how to search for books and how to set up your device on the OverDrive Help site at http://help.overdrive.com/#videos.

Logging in to OverDrive from a computer/browser:

Access the SD129 OverDrive site by going to http://sd129.lib.overdrive.com/.  You can also get there by clicking the “Open” button on a title in the Destiny library catalog that is marked [EBOOK] or [EAUDIOBOOK].

  • PIN: enter your Lastname
  • Use one uppercase letter followed by lowercase letters  [example: Hahn]
