Curbside Services for 20-21

The Logan High School library is now able to offer curbside library services to our students! That means our students will now be able to request books online and library staff will contact students to arrange for a safe pick-up. In addition, we now also have an outdoor library book drop outside the main entrance of the school – this is where all overdue books should be returned, as well as any books that are checked out during curbside. 

All information including directions and links for requesting books can be found at this site: www.destinydiscover.com  Enter Wisconsin & Logan High School.  Instructions for curbside are found at the top. 

For your safety, we are following the recommendations from the state and will be setting aside all returned books for 96 hours before handling them and returning them into the collection for circulation. This means that books may take a while to be removed from a student’s account, but rest assured – if they are in the book drop, they are considered returned.

Please contact LHS librarian Ms. Kristi Moulton at kmoulton@lacrossesd.org or call the school (608-789-7700) with any questions.
