Students in 4th and 5th grade have the opportunity to vote for the Nutmeg Book Award in April. The Nutmeg Award is an annual contest run throughout the state of Connecticut where students choose their favorite book from a list of ten nominees. Nominees are announced in May and students can vote the following April for their favorite book. The Tashua Library has multiple copies of each title. All the titles are also available at local bookstores and the Trumbull Library.

The Library Media Center is open during school hours. Students come to the Library with their class once a week for lessons and book exchanges. If they have returned their books they may check a new book out at that time. In addition, special open exchange hours in the morning let students exchange books before their regular library visit.
The number of books students can check out from the library depends on their grade level. Kindergarten starts with one book. First and second grade may borrow two books. Third and fourth grade students may borrow three while fifth grade can borrow four. Books can be borrowed for two weeks.
Periodically notices will be sent home from the library if your child has an overdue book. There are no fees for overdue books but your child may not be able to borrow new books from the library until all overdue materials are returned. If a book is lost or damaged a replacement must be purchased by the library. Please send in cash or a check made out to Tashua School along with the overdue notice.
