Parents' Guide to the Doyle Library
The Library is open every morning before school, during the school day and after school on Wednesdays.
All students and families have the opportunity to check out books at our school library. Kindergarten and first graders can only take out one book at a time during their library visits, but parents can check out 10 books at a time for each week's visit. Parents can sign up to get their own library check out account.
We hope that all Doyle families will have the opportunity to meet our librarian, Mrs. Mitchell. She works very hard to create aninviting place to browse and fall in love with reading.
Throughout the year Mrs. Mitchell hosts library events to benefit Doyle families and the library. Following is a list of events scheduled for the school year

The Book Exchange
Each October our Doyle Library holds a book exchange. This exchange is a great way to expand your home library without spending another cent!
For about three weeks our librarian, Mrs. Mitchell, collects books that students have read and/or outgrown and no longer want in their home collections. On the third Thursday of October those students who have contributed books to the exchange have the opportunity to return to the library and select up to 10 books in exchange for those they brought in. The shopping values are calculated on the number and type of books brought in for the exchange.
Book Exchange POINT VALUES:
Hardback books = 2 points
Chapter books = 2 points
Paperback books = 1 point
Magazines = 1 point
Videos = 2 points
No board books please!
Boxtops For Education/Online Marketplace = $ to Library
Mrs. Mitchell collects Box Tops for Education that she turns in twice a year for funds to help our library. The Box Tops For Education are generallyworth 10 cents per label, multiply that by the over 800 students we have at Doyle and those little labels can add up to nice additions to our library. Your extra effort to turn in one or more labels is greatly appreciated! Please visit http://www.boxtops4education.com/AboutBoxTops/Products.aspx for a list of products that contain these labels.
Do you shop online? If so, consider joining Box Tops Marketplace and go to their website before going to your favorite online store…your purchases will help earn Box Top money for our Library! http://www.boxtops4education.com/Marketplace/Default.aspx visit their site and check out all of their online partners!
The Doyle library was most fortunate to receive book donations from several families before the summer break. These books will be used to enrich our shelves with new copies and act as replacement copies for tired, well read books. We are always happy to receive donations at any time and work hard to find happy homes for all the books. Thanks again for thinking of Doyle library.
