Polson LMC & COVID 19

The Polson Library Media Specialist will work collaboratively with classroom teachers 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.  Click here for more detailed instructions.

Materials can be returned to the library bins outside the LMC or the bin outside the school’s front door.  They will then be quarantined in the LMC for 6 days or wiped down with alcohol wipes if the title is in high demand.
