Oakview Library

Welcome back to another exciting year in the L.R.C.   My name is Claire Lasak, and I am very excited to be your child’s new librarian. This will be my ninth year working in the New Lenox School District and my second year as a librarian.  Students will be visiting the library for a thirty-minute session per week. During that time they will be taught library skills, read literature, and borrow books. The children will begin borrowing books the week of August 26th.  All books are due two weeks from the day they are checked out. Books may be renewed, but the student must bring the book to the library in order to do so. Students will be able to check out up to three books at a time. If new books are needed before the next check out date, they are more than welcome to visit the library and select new books.  If a student is absent on their library day, they can return their books when they return to school. If you have any questions, please email me at: clasak@nlsd122.org

Procedures and Policies

*Students may check out 2 books at one time- one pleasure reading book, and one of their choice.

*Books are loaned out for 10 school days.

*Please check the due date card that is located in the front pocket of the book to see the date it is due.

*If the book is lost or stolen, THE STUDENT WHO HAS CHECKED OUT THE BOOK will be charged the CURRENT price of the book.
