Checking Out Physical Library Books during Hybrid Learning
Now that we have begun hybrid in-person learning, students can now check out physical Library books from our collection! Here is a description of how this system works:
1. Go on to our GHS Library homepage and click on the link that says Search the Library Catalog. This will take you to our GHS "Destiny" book search system.
2.) Log on to your GHS Library account. There is a login button at the top right hand corner of the Destiny page. You'll be asked to sign in using Google. Just use your GBSD Google account to log in. When you login, you'll see your name in the top right hand corner of the screen.
3.) Browse the catalog for titles that you may want. When you find a book that you want to check out, click on the details button and that will open the record of the book. At the top right hand corner of the record there is a button that says Hold It. Click on the Hold It button and that's all you need to do!
Clicking on Hold It will tell us that you want a book and we will grab and deliver it to your next in-person class the next available day. You don't have to come to the Library. It will be waiting for you in your class in a plastic bag all ready to go! This isn't an instant process, so plan ahead to get your holds in or you may have to wait until next week to have it waiting for you in class. When you are done with the book, just drop it in the convenient Library drop box located outside of our Library.
Please keep in mind that if you still have books out from last school year, you won't be able to get new books until you return the old books. There are return boxes in front of the Library doors and some of the student entrances to the building that you can use to drop off Library books.
