Mary Beth Utley, Librarian

Rick Schaffer, Assistant

Our Mission Statement:  To empower students and staff to become critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, and ethical users of information.

Hours:  7:50am – 2:40pm
*The librarian is usually available to check out books after school, but you should call first to make sure someone will be available.

Library Lessons:  The Maybeury Library uses a flexible schedule in order for our students to make the best use of our facilities.  Students in grades K-2 have a scheduled library lesson each week.  These lessons focus on teaching students how to use the library, as well as literature, reference or technology skills.  Teachers in grades 3-5 collaborate with the librarian to plan lessons that support the grade level curriculum in connection with library, literature, research or technology skills.  We have an open access policy that allows all students to come at any time of the day (with the teacher’s permission) for book exchange, research, AR testing or other library needs.

Our Collection:  The Maybeury Library has a collection of over 13,000 items.  We are constantly adding to our collection.  Maybeury participates in the Interlibrary Loan system with other county school libraries.  This allows us to borrow items from other schools, and provides us with a collection of nearly 750,000 items!

Checkout Policies:
Grades K-2:     2 books
Grades 3-5       3 items (including a magazine)

All student items are checked out for a ONE week period.  Students in grades 3-5 may also check out magazines.  Items may be renewed twice (for a total of 3 weeks).  If you need longer to finish a book, just ask.

Overdue notices are usually printed weekly.  There are no fines for overdue books at the elementary level, but we appreciate your prompt return or renewal of library materials.  Students are not allowed to check out new materials until overdues are returned.

Parents may sign up for library privileges at any time.  Please stop by the library to fill out the necessary paperwork.

Replacement Policy:
We begin teaching students right away about proper book care and responsibility for their library books.  We hope that it won’t be necessary, but if a book is lost or damaged, the following replacement fees apply

Hardback books:     $16.00

Paperback books:   $5.00

*We reserve the right to charge a higher fee for items that are costlier to replace.
