How to Place a Book on Hold

The Fullerton Library is excited to give students the opportunity to place library books on hold using their Chromebooks! Please review How to Place a Book on Hold to learn about this process. Students may check out two library books at a time and read them for up to two weeks. Once a student places a book on hold and it is ready for pick-up parents will be contacted through Remind. Books will be picked up and dropped off at Door 1 in the vestibule during student attendance days from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. In the vestibule there will a library cart where the books/holds will be… just look for the ones with your student’s name on them! Additionally, there will be a bin by the library cart where books should be returned. Students must return previous library books when picking up their new holds.

Chromebook Troubleshooting

If your child's Chromebook is experiencing issues, we have found in most instances a Hard Reset will fix whatever issue your student's Chromebook is undergoing. Please use this video which will show you the steps on how to perform a Hard Reset to the Chromebook. If, after conducting the Hard Reset, your child's Chromebook still isn't working properly, please have them reach out to their classroom teacher who will provide them with the next steps in this process.

2020 CENSUS- Deadline Sept. 30

ASD4 Parents/Guardians,

You may have heard the federal 2020 Census deadline is approaching and how important it is for everyone to be counted. The census represents an opportunity for everyone in our community to proudly and loudly say, “I’m here. I count. I matter.”

The census impacts our day-to-day lives in tremendous ways. It determines how much federal funding we have to fix our roads, feed our community, and teach our children. Missing just one child means we miss out on funds for their education for the next ten years. The census also determines how many representatives Illinois has in Congress and the Electoral College.

So much is at stake, which is why we need you to take the 2020 Census before the September 30, 2020 deadline. There are three ways to take the census.

  • Online: Visit my2020census.gov and fill out the Census now on your computer, tablet, or smart phone.
  • Phone: Call 844-330-2020 to fill out the Census over the phone. The US Census Bureau offers assistance in 59 non-English languages, including American Sign Language.
  • Mail: Fill out the Census form you received in the mail and return it, free of charge, to the US Census Bureau.

Taking the census is safe and secure. The 2020 Census does not ask about anyone’s citizenship status, and federal law prohibits the sharing of census responses with anyone, including law enforcement or immigration agencies. Learn more about census confidentiality at 2020census.gov/en/data-protection.html.

You can get answers to any other questions about the Census by texting "Question" or "Pregunta" to 987987 or by visiting 2020census.gov.

Taking the Census takes less than 5 minutes. If you haven’t already, please complete the 2020 Census today.

Thank you!
