Checking Out Library Books During Distance Learning

During distance learning, DJUSD students from any secondary school may check out books from the Emerson & Da Vinci Junior High Library. The checked-out books can be picked up at Emerson & Da Vinci Junior High during specific distribution times.

To request a book for check-out please follow this process:


1 - Go to the Emerson & Da Vinci Online Catalog

2 - Search for the book you want to borrow.

3 - Once you know what book you want to borrow, fill out the Emerson & Da Vinci Library Book Request Form


Once the Emerson & Da Vinci Library Staff has processed your reserve, you will receive an email with information about when to pick-up your book. Please remember to wear a mask and follow social distancing protocols when entering the campus. 


You may pick up your reserved library books at Emerson & Da Vinci's front drive through parking lot, curbside, on Fridays between 2-3:30pm. Books not picked up after two weeks will be returned to the library. Books will be placed in the IDC on carts for alternative pickup Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm. Please submit requests by 4pm on Wednesday for pick-up on Friday.


Our first distribution will be on Friday, November 13th, 2020.


Books may be returned to any open DJUSD library, although we encourage you to return books to our school. *Drop boxes will be coming soon.


For other questions, please contact the Emerson & Da Vinci Library by emailing Ms. McCutcheon and/or the library staff at: xjackson@djusd.net andtdiel@djusd.net
