The Leesville Road High School media center introduces a new process of checking out books online to ensure the safety and well being of students, staff, and others.
The Leesville Road High School (LRHS) media center plans to open as the school year begins. However, since the first quarter of the school year is virtual, the media center not be open for indoor use.
Instead, a new process of checking out books is introduced by the media center on August 17 to provide students with the books and novels they need, while maintaining the safety of the students and staff.
The LRHS media center announced via Twitter that students are still able to check out books through online registration and pickup: “Great news LRHS students! You can still check out books from our library”.
In the tweet, the LRHS media center adds a hyperlink to their website regarding more information about the online library service. On the website are two listed hyperlinks: one is a simple and quick tutorial video regarding how to find books, and the second link is a quick Google form to request the books. This process of checking out books through the LRHS virtual library is called the ‘Books on the Go’ service.
The ‘Books on the Go’ service offers students to virtually check out any book from the LRHS library and pick up the books through curbside pickup. The ‘Books on the Go’ service offers a variety of materials for students to check out.
This service provided by the LRHS media center keeps the media center in business while ensuring a safe and Covid-free environment. With the Leesville campus still closed and as students are beginning their third week of school, the LRHS media center is using methods local libraries have been using to keep everything up and running safely.
