How Long Do I Get to Borrow Library Book(s)?
Materials are due back one week following check-outs or may be renewed for an additional week (2 weeks) as long as no one has requested the title. Once the grade-level maximum is reached, items must be returned in order to check-out more materials. Library books may be renewed once without the book present.

Want to give your child a special birthday present while supporting the AES library?
What is the Birthday Book Club?
The birthday book club allows you to select a brand new book for your child’s birthday. The book will be placed in the library for all to enjoy. Your child’s picture will be taken with the book and placed on our Birthday Book Club Wall in the library. Birthday Book Club members will receive a library bookworm spirit tag and a certificate presented on Friday Flag Day! Books must be received 7 days prior to presentation at Friday’s Flag Day!
How do I select the book?
A Birthday Book Club Wish List has been created on Amazon.com. Books do not have to be purchased from the wishlist although it is preferred. If you have a favorite book and would like to share it with us please contact Ms. Villegas. All books should be in hardcover. Please visit the list at AES Birthday Book Club Wish List or you can purchase one of the books from the list from your local bookstore and bring it to school.
Does my child keep the book?
The book becomes part of the library’s collection. It is a gift to the library in honor of your child’s birthday.
If you have any questions please email Ms. Villegas.
