Library News...

Wondering what will the library look like this year?

  • Ebook use is encouraged, learn how to checkout digital books, and more, on our website:
  • A “library on a cart” will visit all grades to collect returned books and deliver new ones. Students will not be entering the library to checkout items or visit the makerspace at this time.
  • Younger students will be able to shop from a cart or choose from a paper menu for specific items. Older students will learn to use the library catalog to select specific books for checkout. Items will be delivered to classrooms when they become available.
  • All library materials are for personal use only, please read and enjoy, but do not share. All books will be quarantined for at least 3 days before they are circulated again.
  • If you still have items from last year please send those back to school with your student. You can also return items from other MISD schools to McClure.
  • Virtual students can checkout library books through a curbside pickup option. If your child is a virtual student and you are interested in this service, please contact us here for more information.
