Book Return

Students who were Luxmanor Owls during the 2019-2020 school year: Do you still have a Luxmanor library book? If so, please return your book to your teacher, who can then return it to the library. 

Not sure a book belongs to the Luxmanor library? Just turn it over and look for a long white sticker on the back that says Luxmanor Elementary Library.
