Watch this video as an example of correct library behaviour. (tee hee)
1. Listen actively and use quiet voices in the library.
2. Choose "just right" books; books at your reading level. There is no point in taking a book you do not understand.
3. Put things back, how you found them: books, chairs, pencils, devices, etc.
4. Treat everyone with kindness and respect.
5. Take care of our school, library and materials. This is YOUR library, treat it with respect.
