Curbside Book Checkout

BGS Curbside Book Pickup!

Hello, Pandas!!!

The Media Center is excited to continue offering book checkouts through contactless Curbside Pickup each week. Follow directions below to check out books:

  • Log into Destiny and place HOLDS on the books you'd like to check out (see instructions below). If you'd like me to select books for you, make sure you fill out the Checkout Rec Request Form (see below) and include things that interest you. 
  • All holds/requests are due by Monday night each week for pickup on Thursday or Friday of that weekFamilies only need to fill out the Curbside Checkout Rec Request Form if you want book recommendations for checkout. If you have placed holds, you do not need to submit a Google Form.
  • I will message students directly to their Canvas Inbox when materials are ready for pickup, so please check Canvas emails. 
  • You can pick up your books from 8:00 am- 5 pm on Thursday or Friday of the week you submitted a request/holds. Families may also drop off books in the collection bins on Thursdays/Fridays. Books will remain in quarantine for 1 week before processing.


  • Checkout Guidelines:
    • Students may request up to 5 books at a time by placing a HOLD in the Destiny Catalog (see directions below).
    • Students may only request 1 book in a single series (Dogman, etc.) per order.
    • The checkout period is now 3 weeks. There will be no fines assessed for overdue materials. However, lost materials must still be replaced or paid for by families.
    • I can not specifically pull books based on AR by request. Families may find AR books for themselves or consult their classroom teacher and follow regular checkout request procedures.
    • I can provide book suggestions based on genre and student interest.
