Checking Out Books

How to Checkout Books

Are you ready to borrow some of our AMAZING books?

Here's what you need to know...

  • Purpose:  JMHS would like to provide drive through service every other Thursday from 1:30-4:00 pm for students to pick up library books to read. At the drive through service behind the library, students would be able to:

    • Pick up previously reserved books (students can do this through Destiny Discover) that are packaged & labeled for them and ready to be handed off into their cars.
    • Observe from their vehicle or from behind a rope at 6 ft distance, a curated collection of popular books to request for curbside checkout service. 
    • Return library books to a return bin.

    Safety: To make sure that the service is safe for everyone involved, we will adhere to the following:

    • Staff working the curbside pickup will wear a mask at all times and gloves will be offered to those touching common items such as books.
    • Staff will sanitize hands before and after handling books for each student. 
    • We will require that all participants maintain proper physical distancing of 6 ft, with arms extended when exchanging books.
    • Books will be quarantined after they are returned to the site for at least 72 hours before being checked in and made available to the next student. 
    • Students will not be allowed to handle available books. They will view them from a distance to make requests if they did not make a prior reservation.

Here are the steps to reserve a book ahead of time.
