Middle School Book Check Out!

The Weston Middle School Library Staff is delighted to be open for Phase 1 of checking out books!  We have listed the steps below:

  1. Students and teachers will want to use the MS Library Catalog to see new books and   select their book. The Resource Lists in the Catalog is a shortcut to a variety of Book Lists including New Books.
  2.  We have a MS Book Request Form   students to complete so we can pull and prepare your book(s.)  
  3. Lasty, you will receive an email giving you a Pick Up Day & Time for your book(s). They will be either in the Library for hybrid students on the property  or in the Lobby for Remote Learning Students

We are  delighted to assist students, families, and teachers with all of these programs.

Let’s talk,
