• How To Check Out a Book; Covid Edition

    Fall 2020

    In order to minimize exposure and keep our patrons as safe as possible there are three ways to access books in our library.  

    1. Place a hold on a book using the library catalog (Enterprise).  

    • Go to Search For Books on the left hand column of the library home page.  
    • Click LOG IN on the top right.  Student login:  MCPS + student ID number, e.g. MCPS1234567 Password:  CHANGEME (everyone starts with this password, you can change it from MY ACCOUNT). 
    • Search for books.  When you find the book you want, click the red, Place Hold, button on the right.  
    • When the book is ready you will receive an email.  If the book is checked out, you may have to wait for it to be returned.
    • Pick the book up from the library on your way to lunch.
