Intermediate Library

The Hornell Intermediate School Library provides a safe place for students to enjoy stories, explore books, express creativity, learn new things, work together, and have fun! We offer a variety of fiction and nonfiction titles for students to choose from, as well as online resources for both students and staff. 

Students have access to the library in a variety of ways. The second, third and fourth graders attend a library class once a week. Fifth and sixth grade students attend library class for one trimester each school year. The library is open to all Intermediate School students daily throughout the year. The love of books is fostered in our space that is both welcoming and inclusive to all. At our school, book joy is evident and ever-growing!

Library Policies

Circulation Policy

Students are able to check out two library books at a time, and may keep their book for up to two weeks before it must be returned or renewed. Students can return their books before they are due, as this encourages more reading!

Overdue/Lost Book Policy

Our library depends on the ethical character of our students. Resources provided are shared by the school community and are expected to be kept in good condition, returned promptly and/or replaced if lost or damaged so that others are not deprived of their use. Students with multiple overdue resources will not be allowed to borrow new titles.
