Glenn Harmon Elementary Library
Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.
Kristi Stevens, Librarian
Library Hours ~ Monday-Friday 8:00-3:30
Parents, stop by the library and sign up for a library account. You can check out five books at a time and keep them for two weeks.
Students in grades K-2 have weekly checkout. Students in grades 3-4 have flexible checkout and will visit the library on an as needed basis. All books may be checked out for 2 weeks and may be renewed as needed. If there are any late books, students may not check out until they return the book that is late.
Classes visit our library for instruction and checkout. Students may utilize our Open Check Out program which allows students the flexibility to visit the library individually on a more frequent basis.
Access to search for books in Glenn Harmon's library may be done from the classroom or home, by visiting the Destiny web site.
