Welcome to the Library and Learning Commons Page
The Media Center is open!
Students, two at a time and with a pass, may come to check-out/return books, have a quiet place to read, or work on assignments. If a student would like to browse for a book, they must use the Destiny Discover app in ClassLink, or www.gofollett.com, to find a book prior to coming in. Students log-in to the site using the same credentials as their Chromebook. This policy is in place to keep all students safe and minimize exposure.
Everyone must use hand sanitizer when entering the Media Center, masks are required at all times, students may only handle books that they want to check out, and everyone must maintain social distancing. Students with a pass are welcome any time throughout the day.
All current library fines are being waived. Students with outstanding books are encouraged to return them ASAP. Last school year ended in a very unusual manner, and we understand that many students just could not get their books back to campus. If a student is unable to locate their book, please see Ms. Medero in the Media Center. Please note though that the Media Center is back up and running, and regular book checkout procedures and policies are in place. From now on, if a student is late to return a book or if they lose it, fines and fees will be incurred.
