Hoover Kids Love to Read!


Mrs. Amy Grundmeyer- Teacher Librarian

and Ms. Kim Thede - Media Secretary


The Hoover library is open for students from 8:50 A.M. until 3:30 P.M.  Kindergarten children are allowed to check out 2 books at a time.  They may come to the library as often as they like to exchange books. Students in grade one may check out two books, second and third may check out 3 books, fourth and  fifth graders may check out up to five books. The checkout period is for two week.  Students may return their books earlier if they choose or may renew their materials if they need them longer.  Overdue notices are sent home frequently on the students library day.

The library catalog is computerized.  There are six Dell computers  in the library for students to search for materials. They may also look up materials from their classroom, the lab or from home.
