Our librarian:

Mrs. Eggen is our teacher-librarian and she LOVES books! 

Library schedule:

I am at the school full time and provide students each day the opportunity to return their books, and either exchange or renew them.  Students can also put books on hold and I will deliver them as soon as they are available. Click on the following link to access our catalogue and put books on hold (maximum of 2).  Username is student's ID number.  Password for K-3 is student's birthday (YYYYMMDD) and password for 4-5 is the same as his/her district computer login.  Alternatively, you can download the Destiny Discover app for use on an iphone or ipad.  Please check with me if you need any help logging in.
