We love reading at North Springfield!

Discover Destiny

Welcome to our library!

Each class visits the library weekly for Specials. Students work on Problem Based Learning and Technology Projects as well as critical thinking and research skills. Choice, creativity, communication, and collaboration are key features of instruction in the North Springfield Library. Students are encouraged to explore and challenge themselves, all within a safe and supportive environment.

Library Policies:

Check out:

  • Students, with no overdue books, may check out as many books as they can carry.

  • If you want to restrict the number of books your child checks out each week, please email  Mrs. Madigan, @email.

  • Students may choose any book, regardless of content or reading level. If you do not want your child to read a certain book, please have him/her return it to the library.

  • All books are checked out for two weeks. After that, they are considered overdue.

  • Any student with overdue books can only borrow one book each week until the overdue books are returned.

  • Students with more than 3 overdue books will not be able to check out any books.

Book Return:

  • Please return books on time. A good way to help your child keep track of library books is to keep them in the same place at home, a spot which is separate from personal books and public library books.

  • Overdue notices will be sent home once or twice each quarter in the Thursday folder. Please have your child return these books, or pay the replacement cost, as soon as possible (cash or check made out to NSES).

  • Students who would like to check out books for two more weeks should bring the book to the library for renewal.

Lost Books:

  • Students are responsible for the books they check out. If they loan them to a friend or lose them, they must pay the replacement cost.
