Check out books at CP Library!
Mon, Oct 26 1:18pm

Just a reminder...students can start checking out library books! Prek-1st grade families will place holds for their child. 2nd-5th graders learned how to place holds independently during library class. 

 

HOW TO VIRTUALLY BROWSE THE COMMUNITY PARK LIBRARY AND HOLD A BOOK: 

 

Go to Follet on PPS Link  

 

 

 

Choose SSO Login. You might see a pop up, hit skip if needed. 

 

  

 

Type in a title, subject, or author in the search box at the top of the Destiny page.  Press “Enter” or “Return” to get results.  There may be many pages of results, or just a few.  If the book is “IN” it will be ready for you rather quickly.  If the book is “OUT” you can still hold it, but it will take longer to get it to you. 

 


 

 

 Click on the book you would like and then click on HOLD. For eBooks, select OPEN and start reading! 

 

  

You can put up to 2 books on hold and you may check out up to 2 books at a time.   

You can message Mrs. Jones (Bevan Jones) in Canvas for help!

To check out a book – Put a hold on a book through the Follet app in PPS Link.  When it is available, Mrs. Jones will check it out to you, label it with your name, and place it on a table in your classroom.  You can pick it up when you are at school for class.  Students in grades 2-5 will review this process during library class.  There are also instructions below.  For our younger students, parents should assist them with virtual browsing and holding books.

A Book return box will be outside of the library.  All books should be returned in the collection box only.  The box will be emptied at the end of each day so that books can be cleaned/quarantined according to the district protocols.  Please be respectful and return books in a timely manner (preferably within two weeks).
