Remote Learning Library Materials Distribution

  • The Derby library is excited to begin circulating materials for the 2020-21 school year! Until we are back in school fully face-to-face, we are implementing a holds-and-pickup system. All patrons are invited to find materials using our Destiny Library Catalog. If you find something you want, put it on hold! Mrs. Sindelar, your school librarian, will pull the materials that are available and have them ready for you by your next pickup day at Derby. Please continue reading or watch this instructional video for more details.

    To put materials on hold for pick up, please do the following:

    1.  Go to the Derby Middle School Page.

    2.  Looking at the links off to the left of the page, click Sign in with Classlink.

    3.  Click the orange icon that says Destiny Follett (BPS Destiny SSO), which is currently the 1st icon in the list. Destiny logo

    4.  Find the materials that you want! You can enter a specific title or genre in the search bar, or just browse. 

    5.  Books that say “in” are currently available. Books that say “out” are not available at this time, but you may put them on hold to get on the waiting list.  

    6.  You may put up to 2 books on hold at a time. 

    7.  Materials must be placed on hold by 10 am on the Monday before your materials distribution day for the week to be readied for checkout. You can check if an item has been checked out to you and will be ready for pick up by looking at the status of the materials in your account in Destiny. To view your checkouts, click on the "pancakes" at the top left, and view checkouts.

    8.  Mrs. Sindelar will make every effort to obtain your holds for you, but please be aware of the book's status when placing holds. Books marked as "OUT" may not be available for pickup at the next distribution, because they are currently with another student.

    9.  Visit Derby on a materials distribution day. 

    10.  When you pick up new materials, please bring back your library materials from previous visits, too! There will be a collection area for library returns near the distribution site.
