Library Book Pickup is starting at Bancroft School Library!

Here's how it works:

  • Students request books in advance (up to 5) by placing a hold online

  • Holds must be placed by Tuesday of Book Pickup Week

  • Every two weeks, on Thursday and Friday, books can be picked up/returned at the office (8am-3pm)

Find more information on how to place a hold here: https://bit.ly/bes-lib-flyer  

Holds can be placed Monday, Oct. 26, through Tuesday, Nov. 3. The first pickup days will be Thursday, Nov. 5, and Friday, Nov. 6, outside the office. 

Please note that the week of Oct.19-23 was a "practice week" in library class with Ms. Gomes. The holds system is officially open Monday, Oct. 26. If your child placed a hold on or before Sunday, Oct. 25, they will need to re-do it by Tuesday, Nov. 3 in order to pick up their books on Nov. 5 or 6.

Ms. Gomes (gomesk@mdusd.org) is happy to answer any questions!

Happy reading!!
