    At Goshen Post Elementary, all kindergarten and first grade classes are scheduled for a 30 minute weekly library time for book checkout and instructional lessons. Students may check out one book at a time.  

    Second through fifth grade classroom teachers work with Mrs. Unger to sign up for library lessons and activity times that correlate to current classroom projects and classroom needs.  Lessons may occur weekly, or more frequently, depending on classroom needs. Second- fifth grade students may check out two books at a time.

    All students may check out an additional book for projects or class assignments.

    Kindergarten through fifth grade students may visit the library often as they would like, or is acceptable to their classroom teacher.  We are an open library! Library books will be collected as a whole class weekly, but check out can occur at any time.  

    • Mondays: Second Grade
    • Wednesdays: Third Grade
    • Thursdays: Fourth Grade
    • Fridays: Fifth Grade
    • K-1 classes will return books on their scheduled library day.

    Books are checked out for a two week period, but can be renewed after that for an additional week. We want all students to have access to as much reading material as possible and to enjoy our growing Goshen Post library resources. Overdue notices will be printed and/or emailed on a regular basis.  Notification of replacement cost will be sent home for materials that are claimed to be lost or damaged beyond repair. Money paid for damaged or lost materials will be deposited in the Lost/Damaged Library Book Account. A replacement copy will be purchased. If the exact book is no longer in print, a similar book will be purchased. If a lost book is found after payment is made, a refund can only be given if a replacement book has not yet been purchased.
