We LOVE our Rivera Library!

    Our Mission: 
    The mission of the Rivera Library program is to ensure all students and staff are effective and ethical users of ideas and information; students are empowered to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, and skillful researchers.

    Due Dates for Books: 
    • All students are given bookmarks which show the date books are due back.
    • We do not have late fines, however if a book is overdue a student will not be able to check out a new book until the overdue book is returned or paid for.  
    Damaged Books:
    Students are responsible for damage to books including water/liquid damage, significant tears, missing barcode or spine labels, and coloring/writing in the library book. If it is impossible to repair the book back to usable condition, a fine equal to the price of the book will be assessed.  
    Taking Care of Books at Home: 
    • Keep books away from food and liquids.
    • Keep books away from small children and pets.
    • Do not write, color, cut, or glue in books.
    • Keep books in student's backpack when not reading.
    • Use a bookmark. No folder pages, please. 
    CHAMPS behavior in the library:
    Library follows CHAMPS to ensure students meet expectations and make the best of their time in the library. CHAMPS will be updated for each activity we do within the library.
    C- Conversation (what voice level)
    H - Help (how do we ask for help)
    A - Activity (what activity are we doing)
    M- Movement (how can I move in the library)
    P- Participation (how can I actively be involved in the activity)
    S- Success (using CHAMPS behavior allows us to have a successful time in the library!)
