Transcript of Using our Library!

Computer Lab
Our library also has a computer lab that we will visit during the school year. The lab is open to individual students who would like to take their AR Tests too!
After the Christmas break, you might get the chance to take your AR Test in the computer lab!

Do you think you can remember all those rules to help make your visit to the library a fun experience?

It's Time to Go to the Library!
Did you just the library this summer? Well, if you happened to spend any time in the Seattle Public Library, you might have seen the "book dominoes" that they created. If you missed it, here it is for you:
How to Use OUR Library at TPS
Our library may not be quite as big as the library in Seattle, but it still has a lot of books for you to choose from!
Before we head to the library for you to check books out, however, we need to talk about what kind of books you can find (if you look in the right place) and what kind of manners you should use when visiting the library.
Let's start by talking about what kind of books you can find in our library.
What Can I Find in the Library?
The library is divided into 4 areas of books for you to use when you visit!
1. Fiction books

2. Red-Dot books

3. Nonfiction books

4. Chapter books
Fiction Books
What are fiction books? Do you remember from last year?
Fiction books are books with stories that are NOT REAL. They are stories that are made-up, even if they seem like they could really happen in real life.
Red-Dot Books
This section has been created just for anyone who is looking for a fiction book on any level between 0.1 and 1.9.
Nonfiction Books
Chapter Books
Are you ready for a book with chapters?! Usually, chapter books have a lot more words and less pictures. Don't worry about less pictures though, because the stories are so good you probably won't even notice!
Our fiction section will be where you go to find books with both words and lots of pictures.
A book on those levels could be a 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 0.9, 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 1.8, or 1.9.
There are now even nonfiction books in the Red-Dot section! Look through the colored buckets to see the choices!
The opposite of fiction, nonfiction books are all about things that are real. They can be about plants, animals, dinosaurs, space, farming, sports, transportation, or many other things!
Some chapter books you can find in our TPS library are Junie B. Jones, Henry and Mudge, the American Girls, Arthur chapter books, The Boxcar Children, Captain Underpants, and many many more!
Remember, the computer lab is a part of the library too so we must use whisper voices when talking!
Understanding the Rules
Before we head off to the library, there are a few rules we must go over to make sure that we treat the books in the school library like it is a brand-new book that you just bought at the store with your Mom or Dad.

Rule #1
Always make sure you have clean hands in the library!
Rule #2
Make sure to keep food and drinks away from our library books!
Rule #3
Keep your library book dry.
Rule #4
Treat your books with respect. You are borrowing them!
Can someone tell me some good ways to make sure you have clean hands in the library?
Here are the steps to washing your hands the right way:
Why do we have this rule?
Is this a rule just for your library book when you have it at school?
You may be wondering why this should be a rule. Think about our last rule and then think about other ways that your library book can get wet.
Treat your library book like you would like it to be treated if it was really your book!
What does "borrowing" mean?
Rule #7
Return your books on time!
Rule #5
Don't put your library books on the floor or in other rough places.
Rule #6
Think about how you treat your book at all times!
Rule #8
Be on your best behavior in the library. Make sure to use your whisper voice and walk, don't run, when looking for books.
Why would you not want to put your book on the floor?
What other rough places could you accidentally put your book?
What could happen if you forget about treating your book the right way?
Our classroom will check out books as a group on Fridays, but you can go more often if you want to.
You have one week after you check out your library book to bring it back to the library before it is late.
I want you to take your book home to read it to someone at home, but you must remember to bring it back!
Following the rules of the library are a great way to show your librarian your manner when your are in the library!
What do I do to CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT a book?
Once you have decided on a great book to check-out, all you need to do is take it and your library card to the librarian and she will get you checked-out and ready to go.
When you check-in a book, you will use the computer when you walk in the door. Place the bar code underneath the scanner and let the red-light check the book in! When you hear a "beep" your book as officially been checked in!
After you check-in your book, place it on the purple cart. Fiction books on the top shelves and nonfiction ones on the middle.
