Library Book Hold Pickup

Library Book Checkout

Dear Parents and Students,

We are excited to allow students to begin a holds service to get physical books from the Beacon Heights Library.  This is the procedure we will follow.

  1.  Students can place holds on books through the Beacon Heights library catalog located on the library page of the Beacon Heights website.
  2. Students can have up to 5 books at a time.
  3. We will have a holds pick up service on Wednesdays from 11-1 beginning August 26th and continuing through the end of October.  You will be able to return books during the same time.
  4. To pick up your child’s hold you will text me at 801-602-3887 between 11-1 on Wednesdays with your child’s last name and I will bring the books out to the drive through lane in the front of the school.
  5. If you would like help selecting books for your child, please fill out the form Book Request Assistance and I will pull a random selection of 5 books based on your child’s grade level and book interests for you to pick up.
  6. I am including a video that shows how to login in and place books on hold.

We now have our Battle of the Books form in resources!  Please fill out a form for each Battle book that you read to receive credit for it!
