FROM THE WEST VALLEY SCHOOL LIBRARY
Library visits will begin with student orientations the week of August 19. Checkouts during class visits and lunch will begin the week of September 2. This letter provides a brief overview of the library policies and procedures. Please review this information with your student and retain it for your records. Your awareness and support of library policies and procedures are important not only for keeping the library running smoothly, but also for helping your child use the library successfully. Thank you for your involvement in the process.
