Librarian Picture

Hello my name is Wendy Russell and I'm the Librarian for Sacajawea Elementary. Throughout my education and teaching years literacy has always been my favorite to study and learn. I feel that anyone, no matter their interests or favorite topics, can find a book that they will enjoy. I'm excited to be able to be part of our students learning and reading adventures.

Checking out Books

Please help your child avoid fines by helping them choose a convenient place to keep library books at home. As you choose a place for them to store their library books at home, please keep the books out of reach of pets, toddlers, food, or other hazards. If a book is damaged while checked out, do not attempt to repair it at home, but return it to the school with a note attached to the front cover stating the location of the damage (e.g., page 50). If it can be repaired by the library staff, no fine will be charged.

Students who return books with damage (as opposed to ordinary wear)or have lost the book will be billed for the replacement value of the book. If a book is paid for and then found and returned to the library before the third week of the following school year, any fine paid will be refunded, upon submission of the district receipt issued. Richland School District policy requires that grade reports not be given to students who have any outstanding fines.

Checkout limits:

  • Kindergarten-1st grade: 1 item May keep for 7 days
  • 2nd-5th grade: 2 items or more depending on if needed for classroom projects. May keep for 14 days.

Limits and renewals may be exceeded at the request of a parent or teacher or to accommodate special assignments. Students who have overdue items or unresolved fines will be limited or prevented from checking out materials.
