Pelham Elementary School - Circulation Guidelines

Student’s visit the Media Center on a six day Unified Arts rotation.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to visit the Media Center before, during, and after school.  Our mission is to create a life-long love for reading in our students. All book checkouts are for one week.  However, students are allowed to renew their book titles as needed. If another student has reserved the book title, the current student will have one additional rotation to finish reading their book before needing to return.  Also, students can return their books at any time and exchange it for a different title if he/she desires. Remember, the library is here for you and we want you to visit when your schedule permits and explore!
