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. –Laura Bush

Library Information and Book Check-Out Policy
Students in grades Kindergarten through fourth grade visit the library weekly. Classes visit our library for lessons, checkout, and so much more. Students may utilize our Open Check Out program which allows students the flexibility to visit the library individually on a more frequent basis.
All books may be checked out for a week and may be renewed as needed.
There is no checkout available for students with overdue books. Overdue notices will be sent home as needed.
Please help to ensure your child is a good library citizen. Remind them to take good care of their books and return books on time so that other Hawks can enjoy them.
Access to search for books in Glenn Harmon's library may be done from any computer by visiting the Destiny online catalog website.
