Books, Books and More Books!

Effective December 1, 2020

Library To Go, The Book Bus and The Future Box

LIBRARY TO GO - Tuesdays and Thursdays

LIBRARY TO GO

You can use Nancy Ryles Library To Go to request books and check out book bundles. Two times a week, we’ll host curbside pick up so you can grab your books and go.


What are book bundles?

Book bundles are just what they sound like: bundles of books. We’ll have many book bundles

on hand during our curbside checkout grouped loosely around reading and grade levels.

Checking out book bundles is a GREAT way to find a new book you love!

May I request specific books?

Yes! And you may start requesting them now! There are two ways you can request specific

books from the Nancy Ryles Library. Here’s how:

1. Browse the Nancy Ryles Library catalog to see all the books we have and place a hold.

  • Watch this video about how to place a hold in Destiny.

OR

  • Watch this video about how to use Destiny Discover. Destiny Discover has all of the same books as our regular catalog, they are just shown to you with pictures of the covers of the books. Plus, it’s really fun to use!

2. Email Ms. Osborne or Mr. Chung with a specific title or subject of a book that you’d like.

Send email to erin_osborne@beaverton.k12.or.us or

joseph_chung@beaverton.k12.or.us


How do I know when to pick up my books?

When a book is available for a student, we’ll email both the student and the adult listed on the

library account. Here are the curbside pickup options:

● Tuesdays--11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

● Thursdays--11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.


Please arrive at pickup only after you have received a confirmation email from the library.

If these times don’t work for your family, email erin_osborne@beaverton.k12.or.us


How do I pick up books?

You may walk or drive up to the check-out table. Please remember the following before you

make your trip to the school:

● If you are picking up books that were put on hold, wait for a confirmation email from

the library telling you that your book(s) are ready.

● Everyone in your party must wear a mask and practice social distancing.

● If you are driving, please stay in your car while at the check-out table. There will be

no browsing of books.

● Bring your own bags for books (especially if you’re walking). We’re trying to avoid

single-use plastic bags, and we won’t have bags on hand to carry large numbers of

books.

● We encourage families to work together. We are allowing families to pick up books

for other students whose caregivers may not be able to make it to the school at the set

times.

● Have ready to show a piece of paper with the following information written on it for each

student who will be checking out books: Student name, ID number, and classroom

teacher. You will show this to either Ms. Osborne or Mr. Chung.

● We are encouraging students and families to check out many books. For that reason,

there is no limit to the number of books you may check out. We remind you that you

are responsible for all items checked out to you.

● There will be a seven day delay on updating student accounts after books are turned

in. This is because we need to quarantine all items. For example, if you turn in books on

a Tuesday, expect that those books will be cleared from your library account on the

following Tuesday.

● Please return books in the designated wagon.


If you have any questions, please email Ms. Osborne erin_osborne@beaverton.k12.or.us or Mr. Chung joseph_chung@beaverton.k12.or.us
