• What if the book I check out is offensive to me?

    Posted by:

    If you do not like the book, please return it to the library and select another.  I am sure you understand that every book is not the best choice for every student.  Reading is a joy and it is my pleasure to help you find good books that you will enjoy.  However, you and your parents know better than I do what library materials are best for you and your beliefs.  Please feel free to talk with me about the book and your concerns.

  • Can parents help in the library?

    Posted by:

    Definitely!  Volunteers play a major role in a successful library as well as encouraging our students in a shared love of reading.  Volunteers assist students in locating materials, checking out materials, shelving materials, laminating, repairing books and more.  If you are interested in helping in the Silver Lake Library please read more at our volunteer page.

  • What if I accidentally damage a book?

    Posted by:

    Please tell us right away if the book has been damaged or has loose pages.  First, we will try to repair the book.  Although we appreciate your help in repairing, it is best if you let us make the necessary repairs.  If we are unable to repair the book then you have two options: you can pay for it's replacement, or you can find the same title in reasonable condition (hard back must be hard back) and talk to the librarian about using that as a trade in.

  • What if I have an overdue book?

    Posted by:

    Library materials are checked out depending on your grade level (K and 1st check out one book, 2nd grade checks out two books, 3rd-5th check out three books and all check out times are for two weeks). Students may also renew each item twice.  If you have been given an overdue notice by your teacher or the school, please return the item immediately for renewal or turn-in.  Students with more than 2 overdue books will not be allowed to check out additional materials until the items are returned.
