Hunt Club LRC
The Learning Resource Center (LRC) is meant to be an extension of the classroom. Grades 1st - 5th meet weekly with the Library Media Specialist and work on being effective users of information and learn to navigate the library & information (both in print and online). At times, classroom teachers may collaborate to organize lessons that directly support the classroom instruction and projects. Kindergarten will attend LRC weekly for story time and book check out.

If you enjoy spending time surrounded by books and children, then you may be interested in volunteering at the LRC. On a regular basis, we have a need for people to reshelve the returned library books and assist students at check out. At times, help is needed with other clerical tasks, such as processing books. We also have a need for volunteers at our book fairs - from planning, organizing & decorating, to helping check out students at the register & working a shift. We always need lots of hands to make these events successful.
Book Check-Out Hours
9:00 a.m - 3:45 p.m.
Students come to the LRC for scheduled library instruction and book check-out one day per week. Students are encouraged to utilize the LRC when they need it, and are welcome to visit the LRC more frequently with a pass/permission of their classroom teacher.
1st – 3rd
4th – 5th Grade
2 books normally; 3 books during research projects
The loan period for books is two weeks. The books may be renewed once (if no hold has been requested by another student).
Lost or Damaged Materials
In the unfortunate situation a library book is damaged or lost, a fine may be issued on the student's library account. Library staff will attempt to repair damaged items, but books will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Fines are based on the original purchase price of the library book Check out privileges may be suspended or reduced to one item on loan at a time until the replacement fee of a damaged or lost book has been received. For lost items, the fee will be requested after a search by the student and the LRC staff has been conducted. If the lost item is found within a reasonable amount of time after payment, the payment may be reimbursed. In some cases, a replacement may have already been ordered and refund would not be issued.
A fall Book Fair is planned for near Fall Parent/Teacher conferences (typcially late October/early November) with Scholastic. Each teacher will have the opportunity to create a “wish list” of items parents can see. All profits go towards purchasing additional LRC materials for all to use.
A Spring Book Fair with Scholastic is also planned yearly (typically takes place in early/mid-March). Teachers will again have the opportunity to create "wish lists" for their classrooms.
For both book fairs, students have the opportunity to preview the books and create a wish list to share. Parents are never under any obligation to make purchases from the fair. Many titles from the fair are purchased for our library and made available to our students.
