Remote Check Out

  • Students who are learning from home may check out books from our library! It's easy to do! Just follow these simple instructions:

    1. Let Mrs. Neal know that you would like to check out books. You can send a message through Class Dojo or an email.
    2. Place books on hold using the library's online catalog. 
    3. Allow 2-3 school days for books to be pulled and checked out to your child.
    4. An email will be sent letting you know books are checked out and ready for pick up. (Check your Spam!)

     

Picking Up & Returning Library Books

  • Library books may be picked up during normal school hours.

    • When picking up library books, drive to the front of the school.
    • Call the office at 210-619-4559.
    • Someone will meet you at your vehicle with your child's library books. 
    • If you have library books to return, give them to the staff member.
    • There is no deadline for picking up books (after receiving the email), however, picking them up in a timely manner will be greatly appreciated.
    • Books will be returned to the library and checked back in if they are not picked up within a couple of weeks.

     

    NOTE: Please do not drive to the school to pick up library books until you receive an email saying they are ready for pickup. 

Library Books

  • Your child may have 2 books checked out at a time.

    • It is suggested to place 4 books on hold at a time. This allows me to have more than 2 choices in case a book becomes unavailable. 
    • When picking up checked out books, please be sure to return previously checked out books before taking the new ones home. 
    • Library books may be checked out for 2 weeks, however, they may always be returned sooner.
    • When your child is close to getting ready for new books, please place more books on hold for a maxium number of four. This lets me know that your child is ready for new books! (You can also message me.)
    • Remote learners with overdue library books and/or more than 2 books at home will not be allowed to check out new books until all library books have been returned.

    Important: Library books that are lost or damaged will be issued a fine for replacement. Books that are overdue for more than 30 days will be assumed lost and a fine will be issued.
