Curbside Check Out of KCLS Library Books
KCLS Libraries are now checking out physical paperback and hardcover books for students and adults to pick up and take home to read.
Below is a summary of how you can place holds on books and pick them up at the LFP Town Center Library, Shoreline Library, or Richmond Beach Library.
1) If you have a KCLS library account, move on to step 2. If you don’t have a library card, you can get one hereto learn about.
2) Go to kcls.org and search for books. Place holds on the books you’d like to pick up.
3) You'll get an email notification when your holds are ready. After you get the email, you will need to schedule a time to pick up your books.
You can schedule a time for pick up in three ways:
a) Calling the library ahead of time. Phone numbers and times are listed below.
b) Scheduling a time using the myLibro app.
c) Walking up to the library without calling and following their procedures for pick up. Pick up times are listed below.
2) Here's what you need to know about your KCLS Online Resources student account:
a. Your account number is 412 followed by your school district student ID number. Example: 4120987654
b. Your password is the last four digits of your student ID number. Example: 7654
c. You'll be using databases, eBooks, and audiobooks that don't need to be physically turned in, and so, you will never have fines or fees on your student library account.
d. When you use your KCLS account at school, your teacher will monitor the resources that are using. At-home use and monitoring of your KCLS account is your parent's responsibility. Learn more here.
e. Start at http://kcls.org/students
Then, click "Elementary School Students"
Then, click "Overdrive eBooks..." or other resources you want to use.
f. Do not click the black login button on the KCLS webpage. It won't work for you. You will login to each resource when you click on it.
g. If you have trouble logging in, it might be because your family has "opted out" on the district FERPA form for either "Directory Information for Educational Institutions and Organizations" or "Contact for All Purposes." Visit the LFP front office to make changes to the FERPA form.
