About School Library
Professional Library Aide: Helen Downes
The Winn Brook School Library is open during the school day and is staffed by a part-time professional library aide. Each class visits the library for half an hour once a week, at which time the kindergarteners and first graders have a story time with the library aide and check out books. Children in grades two, three and four accompany their teacher for book circulation and a story or activity.
Parent volunteers help out with circulation during their child's library period and may also assist with shelving and special projects. Parent volunteers are vital to our library. Thank you for your support!
If a conflict arises, please contact Library Aide Helen Downes so that she can find a substitute.
If you would like to volunteer to assist with your child's library class, please contact Library Aide Helen Downes.
Please arrive at least five minutes early to get direction from the library aide or to login to the system should she not be there. The volunteers’ guide offers a helpful review of the procedures.
TEACHERS may sign out books and materials at any time and may keep them as long as they need them.
STUDENTS may sign out books during their weekly half hour library period and when special arrangements are made with a member of the library staff. The books must be returned or renewed during the next library period before another book is borrowed.
LOST BOOKS: If a book is lost, the parent or guardian should notify Ms. Downes to find out the replacement value, then give her cash or a check made out to Winn Brook PTA for that amount.
