    The Details

    Who can participate? This opportunity is available for ALL Scotties.

    How many books can students put on HOLD?  Students can put up to 4 books on HOLD. This is a change!

    How many books can students check out? Students have 8 books out at a time. This includes 4 on HOLD and 4 Checked Out.

    Graphic Novel Details: Because we have a small graphic novel selection, students may only put 2 Graphic Novels on hold each week. IF you select more than 2, Mrs. Finnegan will choose not pull them all.

    Series Details: Please limit the number of books checked out in a series to the number you can read during the check out period.

    What if a student forgot to put books on HOLD for this week? They can begin putting books on HOLD for the following pick date.

    When are books due? Books are due two weeks later. You may return your books at any time during the two week period.

    Still have books from last year? Please return them if you want to be able to pick up new ones.

    Need help with lost books? Email Mrs. Finnegan (scfinnegan@seattleschools.org). Together, we can figure out something.

    What Covid precautions are being taken?

    Effective March 18th, the one-two week quarantine period will be changing to 48 hours. This is based on quarantine periods of our neighboring library systems. Pleas not that this does not include time for staff check in, re-shelving, etc. This means that if a book is returning on Monday morning, Wednesday morning is when library staff can check it in, re-shelve, or fulfill a hold. -- Darcy Brixey, SPS Manager of Library Services and Instructional Materials
