    Hello Del Dayo Dragons!  Here are some  event dates for the 2020-2021 school year:


    Virtual Library Program For Students in Kindergarten - Sixth Grades -- If you are in Cohort A or B, put books on holdand Mrs. Alcalay will deliver them to your classroom. If you are in Cohort C, your books will be placed in the office.  Last Day to check out books is Friday, May 14.


    The Del Dayo Library is offering a Virtual Library Program for all students in Kindergarten - Sixth Grades.  Library Permission slips must be electronically signed and returned to teachers before students may check out books.  If you have not received a Library Permission slip, please ask your teacher.

    Every day the Library Book Return Bin will be outside the Library door from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m.   All books will "quarantine" in the return bin for 96 hours before being checked in and reshelved.  

    All Library Books Are Due on Thursday, May 27


    Directions for Students to Put Library Books On Hold:

    * In your Student Portal, click tile that says, "Follett Destiny."  It has a picture of a tree.  Select our school, "Del Dayo."  Choose "Destiny Discover" and log in with student ID.  Here's what you'll find:

    *Search for a book and it will tell you if it's IN or OUT.  You can put the book on hold. (Out means you'll be next in line to check out the book). Once you press "IN" you then press "Hold It."  Do not press on "ASK" - these books are not available in the Del Dayo Library.

    *Make a "Want To Read" list for future check outs by marking books as "Favorite"

    * Use the Topics Icons to search for books in a specific genre - ie: Fantasy; Adventure; Mystery

    Press the three lines at upper left of the home screen to view the books you've put on hold.  Once they are on hold, Mrs. Alcalay will get a message and she'll pull the books and check them out to you.

    *If you put a book on hold and then change your mind, email Mrs. Alcalay.  She'll remove the hold.

    *Need to renew?  Books will be renewed one time only as long as there are no "holds" or other students requesting the book.

     Questions?  Please email Mrs. Alcalay at marisa.alcalay@sanjuan.edu

    * Please view the Curbside Library Slideshow below for more detailed directions.
