How to borrow library books in five simple steps

  3. On the top right hand corner, click “Log In” and use your school ID and password to log in.

  4. Once you are logged in, you can search for books (title, author, topic, etc.)  by using the search box at the top center of the screen, or click on “Topics” when you scroll down to browse by genre.

  5. Click on the book you would like to borrow, and click “Hold”. Mrs. Brown will email you when your books are ready to pick up in the courtyard by the school office.
