About the North Bend Elementary School Library
The mission of our CCA District Library Program is to foster inviting, inclusive, innovative, collaborative,
and culturally responsive learning environments which empower learners to explore, connect, evaluate, and create.
North Bend Elementary is located in North Liberty, Iowa, and serves students on the west side of the town. The school currently serves students in grades PreK - 3. The school has one full-time, certified teacher librarian. North Bend Elementary has a fixed schedule where K - 3 students visit the library once during a four day rotating cycle. During this time, a lesson is taught and students have the opportunity to check out books. The library has two Chromebooks for quick access to the online catalog, six iPads, and a classroom set of MacBook laptops that students use during library instruction. There is an area of the library that houses makerspace items for library and classroom use. North Bend Elementary hosts two book fairs during the year to promote literacy and a life-long love of reading.
Library Circulation Policy:
Kindergarten - 1 book for 2 weeks
1st - 3rd grades - 2 books for 2 weeks
If you do not finish your book in time, ask to RENEW it. (The book does not need to be brought to the library to renew.) Books may be returned and new books checked out any day of the week, even if it is not a student's regularly scheduled library visit day. Overdue items count as items checked out to a student until they are returned or renewed. Fines are not assessed for overdue library items, but we do ask that replacement fees be paid for books that are lost or damaged.
