About Our Library

  • Welcome!

    On behalf of the students and staff, welcome to Lines Elementary Library Media Center. We are here to serve the needs of our patrons, short and tall. Please let us know if we can help you enjoy our rainbow of resources and services.

    Lines Collections

    The Lines Literature Collection consists of thousands of books appropriate for a wide spectrum of elementary readers as well as nearly twenty periodical subscriptions. The Lines Multimedia Collection includes portable laptop carts, digital cameras, digital video cameras, and LCD projectors and Smart Boards at every grade level. The staff and students at Lines Elementary would like to thank the PTO for their continuous support as we optimize success for all students.

    Library Media Center Hours

    The library is open each school day from 9:00-4:00. Each class has a scheduled time for information literacy integration and book check-out during the school week. Students do not have to wait for their checkout day to exchange books. They may check out books on any school day and are not confined to their book checkout day.

    2. Be respectful of library books and equipment.

    Check Out Policy

    Overdue Policy

    Overdue reminders are printed once a month. There are no overdue fines. However, if a student damages a book beyond repair or loses a book, they will be asked to pay for the item so that it can be replaced as soon as possible. If a book is found and returned, all fines will be refunded.
