Welcome Letter from the Library
Dear Parents/Guardians and Students of Bryn Mawr Community School,
Welcome to book checkout at Bryn Mawr! This letter contains information about our district library system, as well as information on what to do when a book is overdue or lost.
Your school library media center uses a web-based catalog and circulation system called Destiny that allows you to search for books, videos, websites, and many other items in your school’s library collection any time, anywhere that you have internet access.
Destiny also tracks all the materials you have checked out at any school in the district.
If you checked out library books and/or textbooks that you did not return, they will continue to appear under your name.
Learning materials are expensive and we all must be responsible for their use and return. If you have school materials that you have not returned from previous school years, please return them to the library media center. Materials from other schools will be sent to the school they belong to. Students are responsible for lost or damaged MPS materials, and may not have the privilege of attending non-academic events if these items have not been taken care of. Student Library material check out may also be put on hold if a student has too many overdue/lost materials in order to meet the state standard of being responsible for shared resources.
If you have questions or need help with lost or damaged materials, please email Laura Kringler or Heather Thomson in the library media center.
