Find Your Fiction!

The Fiction Section Has Changed

If you've been to the Learning Center in the past few weeks, you may have noticed it: The fiction section now combines ALL the paperback and hardcover books together. This means that all fiction books by a single author can be found in the same place--no more going back and forth between the paperback and hardcover sections to find a second copy or the next in a series. While the spine labels still say PB for paperback and FIC for fiction, the books are ordered by the LAST NAME of the author. So if you know which author you're looking for, you can go directly to the shelf to see if the book is in. Don't forget to look at the signs above the shelves--they tell you, alphabetically, which authors are on those shelves. Happy hunting! :-)

Welcome Back!

What's New 

Fall brings a new school year, new classes, new teachers, and . . . NEW BOOKS!

Shipments of new books have arrived in the LMS Learning Center. Please browse our new book displays when you come with your reading or English class. The Learning Center is also open before school beginning at 7:20 and after school until 3:10.

You can also search the catalog for specific books from outside the library. Click on Destiny Library Catalog under Useful Links in the right sidebar. There you can search by title, author, or subject.

Here you can see whether a book is checked out. The image below shows the search results for The Hunger Games. On the right it says "1 of 1 available" and "0 of 1 available." This tells you how many copies we own, and how many are still available for checkout.

And don't forget: The call number tells you where to find the book!
