Placing Holds

Checkout Books

We are currently checking out books to students from the comfort of your home. Place a hold in Destiny and pickup your books at the next materials pickup (every other Friday).

Current Checkout and Hold limit: 3

Note: you cannot checkout books if you still have overdue materials from last year, please check your home.

Use the link available here to go to the Creekside Destiny Discover site.

Login with your student portal login (used to login to Chromebooks)

If you do not know your students login please contact the office and we will be able to help you.

Hold Button

Please place books on your Favorite List before deciding which ones to place on hold. If you place a hold but the book says pending in your hold list you are on a waiting list for the book (This reserves one of your available holds). We recommend you unhold the pending book and try to find a different one that is available (Place that book on your Favorite List to 'watch' instead, as this book may not be available for weeks).

You want to see a red # in the circle indicating you have ready holds.

Click on the 3 bar menu icon to see your checkouts/holds.Books on hold

Once your ready books are on hold pickups are done alongside materials pickup every other Friday. (If you miss this date Library hours are 8am-1:30pm Tues-Fri ). Please make sure you have placed your holds by the Wednesday before pickup days as our ability to locate them on or close to pickup days may be limited.

Please see the linked video on this page for more details on how to navigate the search sites and place holds.

Dropping off Books

To drop off your checked out books simply return them when you pickup materials next.

There will also be a Library bin available during Library hours outside the Library door.

Important!

When viewing books do NOT click HOLD unless you are absolutely sure you want to check out that book. A ready hold can't be undone unless you contact me and I remove it specifically. Pending holds can be removed (we recommend to find another book). The hold limit varies. If you are unable to hold a book, your limit has been reached. Try adding books to your 'Favorites' list first.

Safety

We are taking all District precautions and using PPE when preparing Library materials for our students. Returned materials are quarantined for 72 hours and cleaned before potentially being reissued.

Please contact me if you need a checkout extension beyond the standard 2 weeks.
