Library/Book Care & Payment
The library is open to all students during morning recess and to 4th, 5th and 6th graders during
lunch recess. During recess students are welcome to read books, conduct research and use
the library computers for school related activities.
Students have regularly scheduled lessons in the library. Lessons are built around the Hawaii
Content and Performance Standards and the Hawaii General Learner Outcomes with the integration
of technology when possible. During this time, the lower grade students explore various genres
and forms of literature while developing comprehension, listening and thinking skills. Students in
the upper grades are taught research skills, information literacy skills and are also exposed to
various forms of literature.
Students in Kindergarten through second grade borrow books for one-week period. Students in
grades 3 - 6 borrow books for a two-week period. The number of books each child can borrow
depends upon his her grade level.
