Welcome to a new year at Kahler Middle School. I look forward to seeing returning students and welcoming new students as well.
All students visit the library every two weeks on a scheduled day with their Language Arts class. They may check out, return, renew, browse and take Accelerated Reader (AR) tests with their teacher present. Students may have two books checked out at a time for a two week period. Books may be renewed if students haven’t finished within the two weeks. Overdue books are charged a fine of five cents per school day. Students have an opportunity before and after school, during passing period and during class time (with a pass from their teacher) to visit the library. Library hours are 8:30AM – 3:45PM daily. The library webpage is available for parents and students to obtain library news.
Our collection is steadily growing. Using the annual library budget and Scholastic dollars, I am able to purchase books that upper grade students will find interesting and challenging along with books for our lower grade students. A wide range of material is purchased each year including: eBooks, audio books, biographies, nonfiction and fiction. Some of these purchases include upper grade level books (Young Adult). Items that fall into the young adult category may not be appropriate for all students and will be clearly labeled with the YA sticker on the book spine. The young adult book level is determined by several criteria and not just by reading level. Some books may have content and language that is better suited for older students.
We try to help our students make wise decisions when choosing a book, but also believe that you know your student best. Please be aware of what your child is reading. If you do not want your student to check out the books with the YA (young adult) sticker, please sign and return the bottom of the attached PDF below.
