    Like the public library, parents, guardians and students can now check school media accounts online to see what books students have checked out, when they’re due, any bills, options to renew and know when a book on hold is available for pickup. To launch this new initiative, simply click on this FORM (also posted on the library webpage) and submit the information that is then routed to the building’s principal. The information is then forwarded to the Library Media Specialist who will send the directions about how to access the student’s account to those requesting access.
