    Welcome to Rainier View Elementary Library, where our goal is to have every student become life long readers and effective users and producers of ideas and information.

    We have many wonderful books to enjoy in our library. All students will have the opportunity to checkout books on a regular basis. Families are welcome too!!

    Kindergarteners  begin checking books out to their classrooms.
    First Graders may check out two books each week.
    Second-Fourth Graders may check out three books weekly.
    Fifth Graders may check out four books each week.

    But remember, you must return your books before you check out new ones!! We will send out monthly reminders for those who need to return or pay for missing books.
