Students may check out when they visit the media center during regularly scheduled class visits or any other time, with the permission of the classroom teacher.
Students in grades 2 (second semester), 3, 4, and 5 have their own library cards and may use the Self Checkout Stations at their convenience.
All materials are checked out for a period of one week, but may be renewed (see below).
Items may be renewed twice, unless another student has placed a hold. The student may continue to renew the item with permission from a staff member or parent volunteer.
Items do not need to be brought back to the library for renewal.
Students in grades 2-5 may click the "Renew" button on the screen beside a title when they scan their library cards.
Students may also renew items online after logging in to the Destiny Library Catalog with their username and password. The username is the student's 9-digit ID number. The password is the student's birthday in this format: yyyymmdd.
Placing a hold
Students may place a hold on an item if it is currently checked out to another student.
Holds may be placed by completing a hold slip in the media center, or by logging into the Destiny Library Catalog. The username is the student's 9-digit ID number. The password is the student's birthday in this format: yyyymmdd.
When the item becomes available, it is checked out to the student who placed the hold and delivered to the classroom teacher's mailbox.
We do not charge fines for overdue items.
In most cases, students with overdue items may still check out. We want to keep them reading!
If a student's record shows that multiple items with different due dates are not being returned, we will contact parents via e-mail or phone to ask for help in returning those items.
Lost or damaged items
We understand that accidents happen and puppies must chew, but in order to maintain a quality collection, we will charge a replacement cost if an item is lost or damaged beyond repair.
If you pay for a lost book and then find it, we will be happy to issue a full refund.
