Learning Resource Center
Learning Resource Center Schedule
The library schedule at Ferson Creek is designed to be flexible while fixed. All grade levels engage in co-taught information and digital literacy lessons every week to hone skills necessary to locate, analyze, evaluate, interpret, and communicate information. The LRC program is fully integrated into each grade level’s curriculum. Teachers often schedule additional time in the LRC to complete projects. Some classes have a fixed book check out time while others send students as needed.
Book Check Out Policy
Kindergarten students check out one book every day, 1st & 2nd graders check out two books every week and 3rd-5th grade students may check out three books every week. All library materials have a one-week check out period, however they may be renewed if the book is brought to the LRC. We do not charge late fines, but we do charge a replacement cost for books that are lost or damaged.
Lost/Damaged Book Policy
If your child loses or damages a book, he or she needs to notify the LRC staff so the book can be marked lost or damaged in our circulation computer. We will send communication that a book must be paid for. The student may not check out another book until the lost/damaged book is found or paid for. If you find a lost book that was paid for, the LRC is happy to issue a refund if the book is returned during the current school year. We thank you for helping your child take responsibility for books in their care.
