Holds-To-Go and other Important Media Center Updates

Here’s a heads-up on some important media center updates.

First, there is just one more week of Holds-to-Go pick-ups for our virtual learners. Next Wednesday, June 2nd will be our last pick-up day for our Beverly Farms friends learning from home. Second, Thursday, June 3rd will be the last day for our in-school learners to place books on hold. All books are due back to the library by Friday, June 11th.

Lastly, please keep looking for books that were checked out last spring. There are still close to 600 books that have not been returned! I will keep a box in the main office all summer if you happen upon some of these missing books.

Finally, thank you for helping to make our Holds-to-Go program such a big success this past spring. I am so happy that the students from Beverly Farms were reading print books again from the school library. Keep reading -- eBooks are always available on the Sora app and Capstone!
