LISD Library Mission Statement

Students, staff and community design and implement a learning organization that provides engaging, innovative experiences every day.

The Flower Mound Elementary Library is now on a partially flexible schedule. Students in kindergarten through 5th grade will come to the library based on the needs of the current class - that may be once a week as a class or in stations.

Friday is a flexible library day - students have the opportunity to come to the library to exchange their books, do research, read, or work on any other projects. 

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How many books can each student check out?
Kindergarten can check out 1 book at time, 1st and 2nd grade can check out 2 books at a time, and 3rd - 5th grade can check out 3 books at a time.

2. How long do you get to keep the books?
The checkout period is for 2 weeks, but of course students can bring their books back before the 2 weeks is up if finished. Students who find they need longer than 2 weeks with a book can recheck them with me. Books not turned in on time are overdue and students must return overdue books before checking out any other materials.

3. What happens if a book becomes lost or damaged?
If a book is lost, a fine equal to the replacement cost of the book is assessed.
Students are responsible for damage to books, including water damage, significant tears, and coloring/writing in books. If it impossible to repair the book back to usable condition, a fine equal to the price of the book will be assessed (most fines are based on reinforced library bound books, so they are often more expensive than a copy from a book store).

4. Does the library accept book donations?
Yes, we accept new or gently used books. All donations are subject to the conditions of our district collection development policy. Any books that do not fit this policy for the library will be passed on to teachers for their classroom libraries.

LISD Intellectual Freedom and Self-Censorship Statement
"Reading is a joy, a privilege, and the right of every patron.
As you select the library books you will read, please understand that every book is not the best choice for every patron.
If a book is unappealing or offensive to you in any way, please return it and select another.
You, our most valued patron, know better than we, the library staff, what reading materials best serve you and your family’s standards and beliefs."
