HOLDS-TO-GO AT BFES
Students can check out books from our school library again! The BFES Library Media Center is offering "Holds-to-Go." Students may place up to five books on hold from the Destiny catalog. In-person students will have books delivered to classes by either Miss Francis or Mrs. Schnure each week they are in the building. Virtual students can pick up their books on Wednesdays. Please wait to receive an email saying your books are ready. All information and instructions are in this video or printed here. We ask that all students return books they have at home so we can keep our books circulating to new readers! Ebooks and audiobooks are always available in SORA.
