Library Information & Book Checkout Policy

Students in Kindergarten and 1st grade may have one book checked out at a time. Students in grade 2 may have two books checked out at a time.  Students in grades 3-4 may have three books checked out at a time.  All books may be checked out for one week, and may be renewed on an as needed basis. Classes visit our library weekly for instruction and checkout. Students may utilize our Open Check Out program which allows students the flexibility to visit the library individually on a more frequent basis.

Parents, please help to ensure your child is a good library citizen and remind them to return his/her book on time, which is your child's responsibility.

Access to search for books in Perry's library may be done from the classroom, or home, by visiting the library website and clicking on the Destiny Discover icon.
