9:05 a.m. - 3:55 p.m.
The Belle Ryan Library opens its doors in the mornings to students at 9:05 a.m..
The library stays open after school from 3:55 p.m. until 4:15 p.m..
Students are invited to the library before and after school to:
read, research, return books, check out new books, and work on assignments.
If your child plans to come to the library after school, permission must be given by a parent/guardian. This should be arranged before coming to school
During the school year Belle Ryan invites a children's author or two to visit our school. Check back soon to find out who will be coming to the Belle Ryan Library during the 2013-14 school year.
Students are reminded during each library class period to inspect the books for damage and report such damage to the librarian before leaving the library.
This is to eliminate responsibility for a damaged book that was not the fault of the student.
During library time students experience the following: check out books, instruction on library skills (how to use the library), instruction on research techniques, exposed to good literature, and given practice with computers. Library classes integrate the regular class subject material with research and study skills.
All students are expected to be kind, be respectful, be responsible, and be safe in the library.
