Ralston School Library Guidelines

The Ralston Library Guidelines for 2019-2020: 

  • Students will maintain an atmosphere that allows other users to focus and study by keeping conversations at a level and length that will not disturb others.
  • Students are expected to be respectful and considerate of others at all times.
  • Four library books at a time is the number of books students may check out for three weeks.
  • Library books are to be returned at the book drop or to the library desk.
  • Students will pay the book replacement cost for lost or damaged books.
  • Replacement cost of a hardback book is $25.50 and for a paperback book is $17.00.  Write checks to BRSSD.
  • Computers are to be used for browsing the catalog and researching school projects.  
  • Use the “quiet room” behavior for individual silent study, unless permission is granted by library staff.
  • Cell phones should be turned off according to school policy.

Parents can help their children to return their books by reminding them at the end of each semester when the grades come home.

Ralston Rams Love the Library!

Ralston Rams love the library and it shows! An average of 500 books monthly are checked out by our students from the school library. Your children, my students love books! They love the color, the feel and the pursuit of information they gain from reading books. This is because our Ralston parents instilled the love of reading at a very young age by reading bedtime stories. Job well done!
