The Wilshire Library offers students, teachers, and parents flexible access by being open Monday – Friday, 7:45 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Parents are invited to visit the library after school to check out books.
For instruction, the library operates on a fixed and flexible schedule. Students in PK-fifth graders visit the library weekly for lessons and check-out.
Library Book Check-out
Pre Kinder and Kinder: 1 book for 1 week
1st - 5th grades: 2 books for 2 weeks
E-books are available for checkout from home, as well.
Please talk to your child about a safe place to put their books so they do not lose them, and so that they are not damaged. By asking them to return their books on time and in good condition, we are teaching them to be responsible library patrons. If a book is lost, late, or damaged a notice will be send home with the students.
At Wilshire Library, we encourage your child to become a critical thinker, enthusiastic reader, skillful researcher, and ethical user of information. Your child will have the opportunity to visit the library to check out books, listen to stories, learn library skills, and much more!
