Family Time Not @ the Library

For the last couple of years, we have offered families the opportunity to come to the library after school. Parents and students could enjoy a story time together, explore our stations, enjoy a craft or snack and check out books as a family. With our need for physical distancing and keeping our building as germ free as possible, that type of Family Time will not be available this year.

However, we believe there are still a number of families that would like to check out books and materials from the BPS library to continue to grow and explore as readers and learners at home. To help with this, families can request a family account where they can check out up to 10 books every two weeks.

Here is how Family Time Not @ the Library will work this year:

  1. Request the Creation of a Family Account - even if you have had an account with us in the past, we need you to complete this new form as we need new information to create a username and password for your Family Destiny account.

  2. You will receive an email confirming the creation of your account with your login information.

  3. Use those credentials to login in to our online catalog Destiny to shop for and pick out the books you would like checked out. Please limit your request to 10 at a time.

  4. To pick up your library books, you have three options. Option 1 is to pick them up after school on the next Wednesday from 3:30 -4:00. Pick up will be at the second grade hall doors on the southwest corner of the building. Option 2 - books may be collected from the Contact Free drop off area outside the main office. Option 3 - books may be sent home with your BPS student.

  5. To return the books you have three options. Drop them off when you pick up your next set, send them with your child to drop off at the library, or you may place them in the Library Return Box under the Contact Free drop off area outside the main office.
