Book Check Out

Each student has the opportunity to visit the library at least once a week with his/her class. If your student has items checked out at that time, they may not be allowed to check out new items until the overdue items are returned.

  • Kindergarten students are allowed to check out one book each week
  • 1st -3rd grade students are allowed to check out two books each week
  • 4th & 5th grade students are allowed to check out three books each week and may check out additional resources for research projects as needed.

Lost/Overdue books

Overdue notices will go home on books that have been checked out for more than two weeks. If you should receive a notice, please look for the lost/overdue item and return it as soon as possible. Automatic emails from the district are sent out to families with overdue books and a paper copy is sent home in Friday folders as well. If you cannot locate the item, please pay the replacement amount listed on the notice and submit this payment to the library so we can clear your student's record and allow them to check out books. If you find the book, please return it the library and we will refund your money paid for the lost book.

Birthday Book Club

Elk Creek Elementary offers a unique way to honor special celebrations. Parents can make a $17.00 donation, through the main office, which allows us to fill our library with wonderful books that align with the district's curriculum while honoring your child's birthday. We have celebrations once a month, with summer birthdays recognized at the beginning of the year. If you are interested, please feel free to pay the fee under student fees through Jeffco connect or fill out this birthday book club form and turn it into the main office. Remember it is never too late to sign up!
