Library & Media Center
Welcome to Olinda's Media Center!
Hybrid Book Check out
No students are allowed in the Media Center at this time. Books must be placed on hold and will be delivered to the library bin that is placed in front of each classroom.
Be sure to place your holds at the beginning of each week (Mon. & Tue.) to allow time for books to be pulled and delivered to your classrooms the same week. If you put books on hold please be sure to check the bin before you leave school each day.
Book returns will also be in the same book bin in front of each classroom. If you need to renew a book please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Distance Learning & Online Academy Book Check out
Please follow instructions on how to put books on hold. After books are placed on hold, please look out for an automated email from our library system or myself letting you know when book/s are ready to be picked up. This email will be sent to the default email address on Aries Parent Portal (please check your junk mailbox). Once you receive this notice you may pick up your books on the library cart located inside the MPR during regular office hours (M-F 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., excluding holidays). Your student may drop off old library books on the same day they pick up their new books. Please remember students may only have 2 library books checked out at one time. If they are not done with a library book and only return 1 book they should only pick up 1 book. The drop-off box is located inside the MPR next to the library cart. If you would like to renew any books please email me at email@example.com.
