Next curbside pickup: Wednesday, October 21, 2:30-4:30

HOW DO I GET BOOKS? (pick method depending on grade-level)


Method 1 (Grades 3-5) You pick the books! – Students can now log into the library catalog and place holds on up to 3 specific print book titles. Please see additional videos and instructions in your child’s Library Canvas Course.


Method 2 – (Montessori, K, 1st and 2nd Grade) We pick the books! Based on your child’s interests, we will select 3 print books for them. Please fill out the Google Book Interest form located in the Library Canvas course or provided by your child’s teacher.


Important: Before coming to Jamestown on Wednesday, October 7th, please remember to check your child’s library account in Destiny Discover to see if books have been checked out to your child. If books are listed under “checkout”, that means that book(s) you requested will be waiting for you to pick up on Wednesday. If they are still under “holds” they are not ready for pickup. (This applies to books placed on hold by students in grades 3-5)

GRAB & GO: Please write your student’s name (last name, first name) on a piece of paper and place it on the passenger side dashboard. Drive up to the front of the school, open the trunk of your car, and wait for a staff member to place your books inside.

HOW DO I RETURN THE BOOKS? Returns can be done on Wednesday afternoons from 2:30 PM – 4:30PM during curbside pickup.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Blaine

It what ways can we mitigate resistance to talking about racism? Racial literacy is a skill that children need to learn about before we send them into a diverse world. @triciaebarvia #sljsummit Classrooms are constantly engaging in civil engagement.
