Now that the school year is upon us, it is important that students continue the practice of reading consistently. To assist students in their reading endeavors, the Lincoln Elementary School Library offers a broad range of reading materials designed to meet students’ interest levels as well as their academic needs.
Students are allowed to check out two books per week using their current Lincoln Elementary School ID cards. Students are encouraged to select books according to their AR reading levels and complete corresponding AR tests. Students are assessed a fine for lost or damaged books. In most cases, fines will cover the replacement cost of any book that has been damaged or unreturned.
