COVID 19 AND THE LIBRARY

IN-PERSON STUDENTS

Are students allowed in the library? If so, how many at a time?

Students are allowed in the library, as long as they are masked and practicing social distancing.

Can books circulate?

Yes, you can still check out physical books from the library. Returned books will be quarantined for 4 days and then disinfected before being returned to the shelves. To check out a book, students go to Powell Follet Destiny to virtually browse the PCHS physical book collection. Once you have made your selection, please fill out the Book Request Form. I check the form periodically throughout the day.

Can students email book requests to the librarian?

Yes, of course, you can always email me (marybeth.mink@powell.kyschools.us) with your book request information.

 

 

REMOTE STUDENTS

Please be patient as the library is undergoing some changes this year.  As the new librarian, I will do my best to help you in any way possible.
