Library Policy

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Welcome to the Orange Center School Library Media Center. Our goal is to help students develop a love for reading by providing a diverse collection of books.  In order to make sure all students can benefit from our library it is important that students know how to take care of borrowed materials. Please read and discuss the expectations below with your child.  

Book Care Rules:

  • Keep books clean; wash hands before touching.
  • Keep books in a safe place away from babies, pets, food, and liquids.
  • Turn pages carefully from the corner and use a bookmark to mark your place. Never write or draw in a book.
  • When you are not reading your library books, keep them in your backpack or in your classroom at school.

Accelerated Reading: Orange Center participates in the AR reading program. Students can earn incentives by taking comprehension quizzes on the books they checkout/read.  

Library Media Center Policies:

1. Library checkout: Kindergarten will be visit the library for read alouds. First  grade students will be allowed to check out one book at a time. Students in grades 2-5 can check out two books at a time.

2. Books must be returned after two weeks or earlier. No other books may be borrowed if your child has any late books.

3. If a book is lost or damaged, the student must pay to replace it per OCPS media policy.
