Welcome to the Library
Welcome to the Washington School Library Media Center!
Every class visits the Library weekly for a lesson and to check out books. Classes are coordinated with grade level curriculum. Students may also access the library before school from 8:50-9:05, and during the day with permission from their teacher.
Students in kindergarten may check out one book per week. Students in grades 1-2 may check out two books per week. Students in grades 3-6 may be able to check out more than two books a week, depending on their needs and responsibility level. Overdue slips will be sent out in December and May, and on an as-needed basis during the rest of the year. There are no overdue fees at the Washington Library. If a book is lost or severely damaged, please contact Mrs. Glenn to arrange payment or an alternative.
You can contact Brenda Glenn, the Teacher Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 847-965-6340.
Illinois Book Awards
Here at Washington, students have the opportunity to vote for their favorite book in three statewide awards.
- Students in grades K-2 will read a selection of nominees for the Monarch Award in class, and vote as a group in February.
- Students in grades 3-5 can read from the Bluestem list, and students in grades 4-5 can read from the Caudill list. For the Bluestem and Caudill, students must read at least 3 books to be able to vote in the spring.
Award nominees are available in the LMC or at your local public library.
