LCISD Library Mission Statement 

The mission of Lamar Consolidated ISD Libraries 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, and serve as a collaborative resource for teachers and staff in developing and delivering powerful learning experiences across all curricular areas.

Student Checkout and Classes

Library classes are conducted for grades PreK-5. 

Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and First grade are able to check out one book. Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students are required to use a Library issued book bag.

Students in second through fifth grades may check out two books. 

Library materials are due back in three weeks, or may be renewed up to 2 times if there are no hold requests. 

While there is no fine for overdue books, materials overdue by 30 days or more are assumed to be lost and a replacement fee will be assessed. If you feel our records are in error kindly email Mrs. Nanez at amanda.nanez@lcisd.org. 

Lost or Damaged Books

If a book is lost or damaged beyond repair it must be paid for. The librarian will notify you if an Lost/Damaged fine has been placed onto your child's account.  Payment should be in exact cash (change cannot be made) or by check payable to Lindsey Elementary. Send the payment to school in a sealed envelope marked Attention Library. Payment is refundable if a lost book is found and returned in good condition on or before the last day of school of the current school year. Book replacements are only purchased by the Librarian and are not accepted as payment as our books are specially made for the high usage volume.

 


Library Activities

The library sponsors one book fair in the fall and a Read-a-Thon in the spring.  The proceeds from these fundraisers help to buy books and pay for special author visits and programs. 

In addition, the library sponsors several voluntary reading promotion programs throughout the school year, such as Beanstack Challenges, the Bluebonnet Reading Program (3rd-5th) and the Texas 2x2 (K-2nd).


Volunteers

Library volunteers are an essential and valuable part of our library program. They help to run the circulation desk, label and shelve books, and allow the librarian to devote more time to teach children the valuable skills of enjoying literature and becoming information masters. 

Please contact Mrs. Nañez @amanda.nanez@lcisd.org, if you are interested in volunteering.
