Library & COVID 
Classroom teachers will work collaboratively with the LMS to arrange for opportunities for students to check out library books as a class.  Students can individually pursue obtaining books by either emailing the LMC staff or placing a hold on the materials in the Destiny Library Catalog.  To place a hold in Destiny, log in using student ID numbers for username and password.  Directions for logging into Destiny.

Materials can be returned to the library bins outside the LMC front doors or the bin outside under the DHHS Bridge.  Books will be quarantined in the LMC for 6 days or wiped down with alcohol wipes if the title is in high demand.
