Textbook Requests - Teachers

The Library and Textbook programs use a combined computer management system called Destiny. The Library Assistant maintains student textbooks and library books. She also records fines and generates bills for unreturned/damaged books. Teachers may work with the Library Assistant and their Department Chair to reserve books based on their section assignments. Requests must be submitted to the Library Assistant using the "blue" form as soon as they are certain of their teaching assignment to guarantee placement on the Fall textbook distribution schedule. At the start of school, teachers will receive date/times to bring their students to the Textbook Room to checkout their textbooks.

During the year, teachers should submit a "golden rod" request form for textbooks (available in the textbook room). Please allow at least 5 days advance notice. The Library Assistant will process your request and schedule your classes to come to the Textbook Room for distribution. *Note that all textbooks requested after Fall distribution are distributed on Wednesdays only.

At the end of the year, teachers will receive a calendar of important dates and a Guideline for Textbook Collection handout. Teachers are encouraged to follow these instructions as closely as possible to keep their department’s textbook collection intact.
