Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to check out books?
Your student ID number. We can help you remember if you forgot, but this number is also your computer password and lunch number.
When can I come to the library?
You will come every two weeks with your language arts teacher, but you may also come during breakfast time and lunch if we are open. As of 10/2020, students only may visit the library during scheduled class times, following reopening protocol.
How many books may I check out?
Generally, we prefer that you stick to three books at a time, but we are sometimes persuaded to let you have more as long as you are responsible with returns.
Do you have graphic novels?
Yes, they are on the shelf by the front door.
How can I find a book?
Our Destiny Catalog is available online for you to use anywhere you have internet access. Librarians are always happy to make suggestions and point you to some good reading materials!
Can I check out videos or DVDs?
These are on reserve for teachers.
Can I check out something even if I have an overdue?
You are welcome to check out paperbacks only until your overdue(s) are renewed or returned.
Do you charge fines for overdues?
No, but we do need you to return books once you have finished them!
Can I check out something for my friend?
No--items that you check out should be for your use only. You are responsible if your friend loses or damages the book. If a friend wants the book, return it and have them check it out.
Can a book be reserved?
Yes, there are pink HOLD forms at the front desk with Mrs. Filer. You may fill this form out to reserve a book. You can also place a hold ONLINE on Destiny Discover.
Can a book be renewed?
Yes! If you need more time (with the exception of popular books) to finish a book, you may renew it by bringing it to the library.
