Remote Book Checkout

Grimmer Library is now offering contactless library book checkout. Students can choose and reserve their library books in advance and online via Destiny Discover. Books can be picked-up or returned every Tuesday and Thursday from 2:00-4:00 in the Grimmer parking lot loop. Students in grades K-3 can check out up to 3 books.  Students in grades 4-6 can check out up to 4 books. Books can be kept up to 2 weeks and must be returned before new books can be checked out. For the Destiny Discover link and more information, please click here or see below.

Follow these simple steps:   

  1. Go to Destiny Discover and log in with your child’s Username and Password

    • Username:  Their regular school log-in: the first three letters of their first name, the first three letters of their last name, the last three digits of their FUSD student ID number.

    • Password: Your student’s full FUSD ID number.  If you do not know it, go to Illuminate and check the Parent Portal or ask your student’s teacher. 

  2. Search for a book.  Click “hold” for the books you want.  Please do not hold more than one book per series. In addition, all student’s are limited to ONE graphic novel (books with a 741.5 call number). If your student changes their mind, they can easily “unhold” a book.

  3. For a Tuesday pick-up, all holds must be placed by Friday at 2:00 PM. For a Thursday pick-up, all holds must be placed by Tuesday at 2:00.

  4. Books will be pulled and checked out to your student and placed in a bag labeled with their name.  You will be notified by your student’s teacher when there are books to pick up.  Please do not come without a notification.  

  5. You will will have TWO pick-up days to pick-up your students books:

    • For example, If I have a book ready for your student on Tuesday, I will put it out for pick up on Tuesday and Thursday of that week. After that, it goes to the next person in line or back to the shelf. 

    • If I have a book ready for your student on Wednesday, I will put it out for pick-up on Thursday and the following Tuesday. 

  6. Books will be distributed in the Grimmer parking lot loop. 

    • Please post a sign with the name of your student(s) and their teacher(s) somewhere on the passenger side of your car.  

    • Pop trunk or rear gate or roll down a window.

    • Your books will be brought to you in a bag,

    • Please ask all passengers in the car to wear a mask during the exchange.

  7. Books can be returned Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00-4:00. When you have books to return, please stop at the cart as you exit the loop and place books on the cart. The cart will be on the driver’s side. You may have to exit your vehicle to return books. Please wear a mask when outside of your car.

  8. To renew a book, please email me. Some books cannot be renewed because there is a high demand and others are waiting to borrow them.

Safety Concerns:

Gloves and mask will be worn when books are handled. Returned books will be quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours before they are checked out again.

Remember:  This program is completely voluntary, and students are not required to take part.  This is a family decision.

I appreciate your patience and support as we work through this together.
