Is it possible to get a book from the school library?  The answer is, "probably." The Reagan Academy library is closed to public access at this time.  However, in certain instances, we are still able to provide library books for families.  If you have been unable to find what you need using the other resources shared on this web page, contact Mrs. Peterson by email with your library needs/desires.  She will work as hard as she can to fill your requests, and if possible, she will arrange a way for you to get the book/s. Please contact her by emailing librarian@reaganacademy.org.  Be sure to write, "BOOK HELP" in the subject line.
 
 
These resources are specifically for the students in Mrs. Peterson's 4th Grade language arts class:  https://www.reaganacademy.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=417312&type=u&pREC_ID=832080

What if I can't find my book to turn it in?   Usually we will renew the book one time to give you more time to find it.  If your child has an overdue or lost library book beyond one renewal date, they will not be allowed to check-out another book until the missing book is taken care of.  We do not charge late fees.  If the book comes back damaged or if the book is lost, we charge for the replacement cost of the book plus a $3 fee for library materials that were used to get the book ready for checkout (stickers, book covers, labels, tape, etc.)  Paying for a book will remove the book from your child's account and will allow them to check out once again. 
 
YA Reading Material  YA is the abbreviation for Young Adult.  Because our school serves grades K-8 we have established a YA reading policy.  Grades K-4 may not check out YA materials without parent approval.  Grades 5-8 are allowed YA materials.  Many families want to make decisions about YA materials on their own.  If you allow your child to check out YA materials before 5th grade, or don't want them checking out YA materials even if they are old enough, please let the library know, we will mark it on your child's account. The following chart will give you an idea of how and why a book may be marked YA.
