Daily Library News
We are open for families and students to check out every day except Friday before and after school. Books are generally due in one week, but students may check in/out books each day before and after school.
Please encourage your child to use the library. Ask them what they checked out, help them bring books back in a timely manner, and of course, read with them and set up time for them to read to themselves.
Class check out times are as follows:
Monday: C-1, D-1, E-1, B-1, K-1, K-2, A-4*
Tuesday: C-2, D-2, #-2, B-2
Wednesday: C-3, D-3, E-3, B-3, K-3, K-4, A-3*

Beacon Hill International School Library has over 14,000 books, and receives hundreds of new books and other materials each year. This adds up to a lot of work! Ms. Thompson and Ms. Kumasaka are always looking for volunteers for these tasks.
- Shelving - the easiest and most needed form of help. You can schedule a regular day to help, or just drop in and shelve a few minutes when you are in the building.
- Special Projects- If you'd rather help by coming in once and a while to do something else this is a choice as well. You could stamp or cover new materials, take pictures for our library wall, or help organize the library.
If you are interested in any of these please drop by the library, email firstname.lastname@example.org or Tdkumasaka@seattleschools.org or call 252-2712.
