    About the Library

    Miss Blakeslee, School Librarian/Media Specialist
    Email: kblakeslee@hamilton.k12.nj.us
     
    Students in Hamilton Township School District come to the library once a week for 40 minutes, which includes time for them to check out books.  
    Students in the library are BUSY and the library curriculum supplements and augments the classroom curriculum. Comprehensive library programs are proven to increase student achievement, and the library program strives to be a place of creativity, fun, and exploration. Ask your student what goes on in library class! Libraries are no longer just "book vaults."
    The mission of the Yardville Heights Media Center program is to help children become fluent and avid readers of stories and informational text, to become "media smart" in evaluating sources of information, and to be fluent users of technology to create and find information.
     
    Hours & Circulation
    The Library is open Wednesday and Thursday from 9:05-3:25. Books should be returned in one week (on the student's next library day). Books can be renewed as often as is needed by the student, unless the book is on hold for another student. Students should notify Miss Blakeslee if a book has been lost or damaged.
    CHECKOUT LIMITS (All materials are due in one week)
    K-2 = 1 books
    3-5 = 2 books 

    ***Note: these limits do not include class-assigned materials. If a child needs a mystery book for a class project, for example, they may take the extra book out.*** 
    Overdues. Any student who has only one overdue book may check out more items. Fines are not charged for overdue books. A replacement fee will be charged for lost or damaged books.
