Shipping and Receiving FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can everything from the DLMC be shipped to my school?

  • No. Certain Science kits, Sustainability Kits, and Robotics, or any electronics are too fragile and expensive to go on the delivery trucks and must be picked at the District Library Media Center.

When is the deadline to place a request?

  • Any orders placed with the Circulation Librarian and/or in Destiny must be placed 1 week before your school's delivery day. The warehouse only comes to the DLMC on Mondays to pick up materials.

Can I pick up my item in person?

  • Of course! Our office is open Monday through Thursday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm and Friday from 7:30 to 3:00. We are open year-round, except for holidays. To request a time to pick up materials fill in this form after placing your reservation in Destiny. We need a minimum of 72 hours to process pick-up items.
