Library

Welcome to Holy Rosary's Library!

 

Destiny (scroll over Destiny and click it for access)

Destiny is our library's online catalog where students, parents, and teachers can browse print and digital resources.  There are various ways to browse the catalog, but some interactive ways are Destiny Quest, Destiny Discover, and WebPath Express. Destiny is accessible via an iPad, other mobile devices, or a computer with Internet access, and the school issued iPads have apps for accessing Destiny Quest and our eBooks.  Students, teachers, and staff must login to their library account via Destiny to access all the library's collections.  WebPath Express is our school's search engine of choice with credible and relevant PreK-12 websites.  Visit Mrs. Rice's library blog, Reader's Corner, for tutorials to use Destiny and it's features (i.e Follett Shelf, WebPath Express), read library news, and lots more.  If you need help with your account login, email Mrs. Rice by clicking on the email link above.

Library Policies

Students in grades 1-8 are scheduled for weekly library time to check out books, eBooks and/or magazines. Kindergarten has a set of library books delivered each week to their classroom to borrow and sometimes they come to visit the library.  Students in grades K-2 are required to keep their library material at school at all times. Students in grades 3-8 are permitted to take their library materials home and become solely responsible for the whereabouts of all materials once checked out in the student’s name. Students are also responsible for independent reading throughout the school year as part of a reading grade and for the Accelerated Reader (A.R.) program. Students in grades 2-8 are required to bring their Student Reading folder to the library and log the books they are reading for A.R.  The folder's purpose is to hold a student accountable for achieveing his or her independent reading goals for A.R. and allows the classroom teacher and resource staff to assist a student in selecting books that meet the current reading skills of the student. 

Loan Period for Books & Magazines:  Library materials may be returned at any time.  If a student finishes reading a book before the next scheduled check out day, the student may ask the classroom teacher permission to go to the library to exchange the book.  Materials available for check out are books, eBooks, and magazines.  Maximum Limit refers to the total amount of materials a student is permitted to borrow at one time.

Grade Level            Maximum Limit          Loan Period         Renewal
     K-2                           1*                              7 days                  1**
     3                               2*                              7 days                  1**
     4-8                            3*                              7 days                  1**

*Only (1) magazine and/or (1) eBook may be checked out at a time.
**If there is a hold on a book, that book is not allowed to be renewed.
 
Holds: A hold is a request for an item to be pulled as soon as it is available and set it aside for the student who is next on the hold list for the item.  Holds should be requested by the student to the media specialist and are on a first come first serve basis. 
 
Overdue Items: Each student will be notified when he/she has an overdue library material(s).  It is the responsibility of the student to return the overdue item(s) to the library immediately or see the media specialist with any concerns.  Overdue notices will be distributed in the Raider's Report (previously Monday Message).
 
Lost/Damaged Items: A student will be charged the replacement cost for any lost library item(s).  Damaged items will be accessed by the media specialist, and she will determine the cost for repair.  Library fine notices will be distributed in the Raider's Report (previously Monday Message).  The fine notice indicates the reason for the fine, the amount of the fine, and the due date for payment.  If the fine is not paid in full by the due date indicated, the amount will be invoiced to the student’s school bill.  A student with a fine is not permitted to borrow from library until the fine(s) have been paid in full.

Our library's resources and literature are for all students and faculty to utilize.  Keep in mind that when books and magazines are damaged or lost, others cannot enjoy reading those materials like others before them.  If you have a fine, please pay it on time so that the library can replace the damaged or lost item immediately.  It is a privilege to borrow materials from our library, and the library staff wants all patrons to enjoy the collections.  Please help us make that possible!
