______________________Welcome to our virtual library media center! Just as we have selected and organized books and other materials in our physical library media center, we have also selected and organized online resources for students and staff on this webpage! Our virtual library is open 24/7, so it is here to help before, during, and after school as well as on the weekends, too. If you have suggestions for resources to add, please let us know.
Library Policies and Procedures
The Orange Elementary School District's [Acceptable Use Policy] link here guides student use of the Internet and other technology resources in the library and throughout the school.
Circulation Procedures for Students
The loan period for library materials is one week. Students may renew materials according to the discretion of library media specialist.
Students may check out two items at a time in grades 1 & 2, three items in grade 3, and four items in grades 4, 5, and 6. Exceptions will be made to these limits (for example, for materials for a class assignment) at the discretion of the library media specialist.
When a student checks an item out from the library, families are responsible for the replacement cost of any lost library materials or for any materials damaged beyond the possibility of repair.
