Library Information

Dear Parent/Guardian,
My name is Ms. Kathleen and I am the Librarian at UPark. I am looking forward to meeting you and am excited to be working with your child in the library this year!
We will be reading and checking out books almost every week and I encourage the students to take their books home to share with you so you can have the opportunity to read together. Reading with your child every day is the best way to encourage your child to become a life-long reader. UPark has an excellent collection of fiction/literature and non-fiction for our students.
Please keep in mind the following guidelines if you student does bring home a UPark library book: 
  • Please ensure that books are kept in a safe place away from pets, young siblings, and crayons. 
  • All library books are due two weeks after checkout. To avoid misplacing books it is always a good idea to put them in the child's backpack after reading.
  • When returning library books, please make sure they are in the same condition as when checked out so that other children may have a chance to enjoy them.
  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 720-424-3418.
Ms. Kathleen
University Park Librarian
