The Book Fair is coming! The Scholastic Book Fair will be at Campbell Elementary from October 10th through 14th. Students will preview the book fair with their class on Monday, October 10th or Tuesday, October 11th. At that time, they will fill out a wish list, which will be sent home for parents to view. Students will return with their class on Wednesday or Thursday to make purchases. Parents wishing to buy books may return the completed wish list with payment or come visit the book fair during the following times:

  • Wednesday, October 12th 7:00 am – 3:30 pm

We ask that students wishing to shop before or after school be accompanied by a parent. Cash, checks (made payable to Campbell Elementary), and credit cards are accepted, or let your child shop the Scholastic Book Fair cash-free with our new digital payment option, the Scholastic eWallet.

Mission Statement

The mission of LCISD librarians is to

create a physical and digital environment in which our students, staff, and community can strengthen their natural inquisitive nature

foster a love of reading

serve as a collaborative resource for teachers and staff in developing powerful learning experiences across all curricular areas.

Student Check Out and Classes

The library is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 2:45 p.m. All classes have the opportunity to check out books once a week. 

Kindergarten and first grade are permitted to check out one book per week. Students in second through fifth grades may check out two books per week. All books are checked out for a one-week period but may be renewed for a second week. Students may not check out new books if the previous ones have not been returned or renewed. By Lamar C.I.S.D. policy, students are required to pay the replacement cost of any book that is lost or damaged beyond repair. If a student finds and returns a lost book that has been paid for within the same school year, a refund may be given. 

Library Activities

The library sponsors two book fairs each year, one in the fall and one in the spring. The proceeds from these book fairs are used to purchase new books and support reading incentives and special programs. In addition, the library sponsors several voluntary programs including Beanstack, Accelerated Reader, and the Birthday Book Club.

Volunteers

Library volunteers are an essential part of our program. They help by shelving books and with other tasks which allow the librarian to devote more time to teach children the valuable skills of enjoying literature and becoming information masters. Please contact Mrs. Peters if you are interested in volunteering.
