Gators Love to Read!

Welcome to the LCES Library page! 

We are finally back together! The books and I have missed you so much! 

If you need to return a book you can drop it by the library anytime during school hours.

In-person students can place holds for books anytime from our online catalog Destiny.  This will help ensure students are able to borrow books from the school library.  Social distancing and covid guidelines are making it hard for everyone in a class to check out during their library time each week. 

 

Please email or message me through Schoology with any concerns or needs.

Announcements

Destiny Library Catalog

Students may have chosen not to check out books over spring break.  Many are avid readers and will bring home their books.  To check which books your student has checked out have them log in to Destiny. There are several Ebooks available on Destiny and links to other Ebook services on the home page.

 

Epic!

Students have access to a free Epic! account through their teachers and school library.  Since this is free through the teachers it is only available during normal school hours (approximately 7-4) BUT is available at home during those hours.  Epic class codes are available on the Schoology Library Course.  If you would like your student to have access to the thousands of books and videos available on Epic! year-round contact your teacher or librarian.
