The media center is open to students from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM
Taylor Elementary has primarily flexible scheduling in which students may come with their classes for whole class checkout, interactive story time, research, and checkouts. They may also come independently or with small groups for checkouts and research with advance notice. The Media Specialist currently provides a Literacy Special to 2nd and 5th grade students.
We are constantly adding to our collection. Drop by the media center so we can help you find the right book for you!
Kindergarten students may check out one book at a time for two weeks.
Second through Fourth Grade students may check out two books at a time for two weeks. Fifth Grade Students may checkout three books for two weeks.
Students must return any overdue books before checking out more books. All grade levels are limited to one Graphic Novel (comic book style) checkout at a time.
Taylor uses an automoated checkout system and it is the expectation that all students know their student ID number by first grade. Fourth and fifth grade students are offered the option to self-checkout their own titles.
We encourge all classrooms to have a designated book return in each classroom and assign a clssroom librarian to return the books to the media center. All retun books should be brought to the media center by 9:30am.
Lost or Damaged Books
Students must pay $15 to replace a lost or damaged library book. Fees may be paid by cash or check in the media center or on MyPaymentsPlus after the fine has been recorded.
Taylor students in Kindergarten can check out one book. Students in second through fourth grades can check out two books. Fifth grade students may checkout three books. All students are limited to one Graphic Novel (comic book style book) at a time All materials can be borrowed for two weeks.
We encourage students to read widely, choosing books that they are excited about. We are happy to provide guidance and assistance to every reader so they can find their next favorite book.
The media center belongs to all of us. For that reason, we take care of and return books on time so that others in our reading community can enjoy them. If a book is lost or damaged beyond repair, we ask that, in line with GCPS policy, you help us replace it through a nominal fee. Lost and damaged book fees can be paid through MyPaymentsPlus.
