Library Update

books-484766_1920.jpg

Thank you for your support of our Book Fair this year! We were able to purchase several new items for the Library and classrooms. We appreciate you!

Now for some beginning of the year housekeeping...

The best way to communicate with the library is through email as we cannot always get to our phone during class times. Please add library@tvja.org to your email address book.

Library classes have started. Material checkout time is 2 weeks. Due dates are stamped on the due date slips attached to all library materials.

Late fines will not accrue during 1st quarter. Starting 2nd quarter, late fines are charged at .10 per day after the 3 day grace period. We do our best to watch student accounts and remind them to return their materials. Families are notified of fines at the end of the 2nd and 3rd quarters and at the end of May/early June. Fines are payable upon notification. Should your student accrue fines, please put the fine amount in an envelope with your student’s name on it and turn it in to the office. Fines not paid by the end of the school year will be added to the final bill and assessed an additional $3 charge.

Our library catalog can be searched from your computer at home. Searches can be done by title, author and key words. Please bookmark https://tvalibrary.goalexandria.com.

Accelerated Reader (AR) is a program that TVA uses to promote reading improvement. Books from the TVA library have the AR information on the cover of the book. When using books from another library or home, it is easy to find the AR level using the website www.arbookfind.com. Families can search to find test numbers, what reading level a book is and how many points a book is worth. Additional information such as plot summary, topics/subtopics and series information can be found by clicking on the title.

We look forward to a great year. Happy Reading!
