Sparky's Library To Go
Bringing Sexton Mountain books to your home
Here's an easy way to keep students reading as we start the year remotely. Use Sparky's Library to Go to request and check out books from the Sexton Mountain library. Three times a week, we'll host curbside pick up so you can grab your books and start reading.
How families request books
There are several ways you can choose books:
Browse the Sexton Mountain Library catalog to see all the books we have and place a hold. The only information you need is a student ID number and password. For more information on how to place holds, check out this video.
Complete a Google form, requesting a specific title or some general subjects.
Email email@example.com with a title or subject.
How do I know when to pick up my books?
When a book is available for a student, we'll email adults to arrange a pick up. Here are the curbside pickup options:
Mondays -- 11:00 am to 12:30 pm
Wednesdays -- 7:00 am to 8:30 am
Fridays -- 11:00 am to 12:30 pm
Please arrive at pickup only after you have received a confirmation email from the LMA and set up a time. If these times don't work for your family, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll arrange something.
