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?
Starting the week of November 30th, there will be a couple changes in our schedule and how students can pick up book bundles from the Sexton Mountain Library:
Mondays -- Curbside distribution will be consolidated in one afternoon. Drop by Sexton Mountain on Mondays between 2:30 and 4:00 pm to pick up bundles of books or to grab your holds.
Wednesdays -- Our Book Bus will be moving to Wednesdays so students can visit during asynchronous learning days. The route and times will be the same. Check the Smore for details about when and where we’ll be.
If you're picking up a hold for a student, you can drop by during any school day between 9 and 4. You'll receive a confirmation email when the book is ready.
If these times and days don't work for your schedule, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll find a way to get books to your readers!
