  • Returning Library Books to Minor

    Now through May 15th, there will be a bin located in front of the school from 11 AM to 1 PM each day during lunch pick up for you to return students' library books.  If you are not able to bring the books during these two weeks, there will be an opportunity the week of May 18th when you come to pick up your student's belongings.  More information about that process will come home soon.
     
    If you would like to check your student's account to see if he/she has books checked out, click here for a video with directions on how to do that.
     
    Keep in mind that books that students left in the classroom have not been checked in yet and that Kindergarten students do not bring library books home, so these books will stay on the student's record until we have an opportunity to collect them from classrooms in the next two weeks. 

    If your child brought home a "book bag" with paperback books from Minor's bookroom (they will have a barcode sticker on the back with Minor's name on it), we will gladly take those books back as well.  These are books that your child's teacher checked out in the teacher's name and sent home with students to be read at home.
     
    Thank you for your help in getting our library materials back so they can be enjoyed by students in the future! We appreciate our Minor families and hope you know how much we've missed you all!
