If you have specific needs for your student for library books please contact your teacher.

If you do not know your students login please contact the office and we will be able to help you. The username and password format changed this year.

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

Virtual Academy pickups will be scheduled in the coming weeks, those books will be available for pickup in the main office after receiving a confirmation email. 

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

Dropping off Books

To drop off overdue or lost books simply return them to the main office.

Holds

 If you are unable to hold a book, your limit may have been reached. Please check if you have overdue books.

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. 

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. We do not accept personally purchased replacements at this time as most Library purchases need to be higher quality, covered materials.
