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, they are available at materials pickup every other Monday from 1-5pm. Or during Library hours 9am-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 to the main office or the Library bin available during Library hours outside the Library door.


If you change your mind and have trouble removing a hold contact me and I can remove it manually. The hold limit varies. If you are unable to hold a book, your limit has been reached. Please check if you have overdue books.

Try adding books to your 'Favorites' list first.


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.

Lost Books

Fines for lost books should be payable by check to Creekside Elementary School. Please put your students name and 'Library Fines' in the notes. Checks can be dropped off directly at the main office.
