YMS 2020-2021 Book Checkout and Return
Pick out the books you want to read
Since you can't come into the library to to pick out your books, we have to get creative! To help you decide what you want to check out you can:
View the Slide Decks. They have themed slides where you can click on the book covers that link to a description of the books. These will change periodically much like the displays we put up in the library so check back often for new slides!
View our Flipgrids:
Search Minerva for topics that interest you and see what comes up!
Search online for Middle Grade or YA books by genre or topic or publication year. If you find something you'd like to read, check Minerva to see if we have it! *See below for some book lists we have gathered for you!
Fill out the appropriate Google Form to request your books for checkout
Check Minerva to make sure that:
THE BOOK YOU WANT IS AT YMS. We cannot get books from other libraries.
THE BOOK YOU WANT IS NOT CHECKED OUT. Check the Status. If it says "DUE" then it is not on our shelves right now. If it just says "UNAVAILABLE" that is okay.
