Media Center Policies
During remote learning, the Northern Elementary School Media Center is offering curbside check-out on a daily basis from 9 am - 1:15 pm. Students may hold up to 2 books at a time. All holds must be placed by noon to be available for pick up the following day. This is a two-step process. First, please visit Destiny to place a book on hold; then fill out the Curbside Checkout Confirmation form to provide an email address for notification that holds are ready. Click here to access a tutorial on how to place a hold. Click here to access the Curbside Check-out Confirmation form. I look forward to checking out some books and seeing you soon!
If your child is currently in-person at school, any holds placed will be delivered to the classroom by the following day, if available.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
