2022-23 Mukilteo Lighthouse Children's Choice Chapter Book Award Nominees
Lost/Overdue Books Policy
Each week, when your child comes to the library with his/her class, s/he is told what books are currently checked out.
If a book is forgotten/overdue, students may still select new books, but they are placed on the Babysitting Cart at the end of the class’ library visit. The student then has until the end of the following school day to switch out the forgotten/overdue books for the new ones. The books left behind at the end of that day are re-shelved. A “Reminder Paper” is printed out and given to your child (or to his/her teacher for distribution later), which includes the book’s title, circulation barcode, and due date.
**Changes to Lost/Damaged Library Books due to district's budget freeze; January, 2023**: If your child is unable to find a lost book, s/he may pay for the book or replace it with a brand new copy of the same title (and in the same type of binding). Before you replace the book, please email Mrs. Smeby first, as she will work with you to find the correct replacement. If your child chooses to pay for the lost book, cash (in exact change, please) or a check made payable to Endeavour Elementary are accepted. If s/he pays for the book and finds it again, s/he may qualify for a refund.
It is a priority for our students to be responsible for their books. Please help your child find a safe place to store library books and help him/her to remember to bring the books back on-time. One of the goals of check-out is teaching the students that the books they check out are *their* responsibility.

Volunteering in the Endeavour Library
Are you interested in helping in the Endeavour Library? If so, please contact Mrs. Smeby: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is Mukilteo School District policy that volunteers must be on the approved volunteer list in the office BEFORE they can work in the library. Please see the front office staff to get the Washington State Patrol paperwork and after showing her your ID in person, please allow two weeks for processing. Volunteers must also show proof of vaccination. Thank you!
All volunteers must be trained by Mrs. Smeby before they can work in the library. It's not difficult; there are just some procedures to discuss.
We hope you join us! The library is a *fantastic* place to be!
Thank you so much! Every student benefits! Your support of the Book Fair provides funding for the contests we enjoy in the library: the Mukilteo Lighthouse Children's Choice Chapter Book Contest, the OTTER (Our Time Together Enjoying Reading) Contest and the Washington Children's Choice Picture Book Contest.
If you purchased books, thank you! If you volunteered, thank you! We couldn't do it without you!
