Welcome to the Media Center
Coquina Elementary School
Reading is one of the most important skills your child will learn in school. Like all skills, improvement comes with practice, and the Coquina Elementary Library provides a wide variety of books for students to borrow for reading practice, information, and enjoyment.
Your child’s class will visit the school library every few weeks. You can help your child by reading to or with him/her and asking questions about the story. Encourage your child to spend time reading with you, other adults, and siblings daily. Regardless of a child’s age reading together is always a benefit.
Students may check out up to three (3) books!
The expectation is that students read the books they check out. They do not have to return them all at once, they can return them as they complete each book. They should finish reading each book before returning it to the library.
Books are due back two weeks from the check out date, but students may renew them one time, if desired and there is not a wait list for the book.
If you have an overdue book, you may not check out another until it is returned. Students/families will be asked to pay for lost or damaged books, or replace the book with the same title and year.
Students will be able to view books through Follett Destiny. They will select their book choices and place a hold on books. The media staff will pull books for students and deliver them to the classroom. If a student is elearning, they may still check out books. The same process will apply, you will just need to pick up the books at the school.
We know these are challenging times. Please let us know if you need technology or media assistance.
We are going to have an amazing year.
