Placing A Library Book On Hold
Top of Page

Unfortunately, students will not be allowed to roam the stack of books at the start of the 2020 - 2021 school year.  However, books can still be checked out by placing them on hold through the Pleasant Grove Library Catalog.  Please allow Mrs. Hadden 24 hours to locate and pull your library hold book(s).  The following is a step-by-step guide to show you how to place a library book on hold. 
 
From home - use the Pleasant Grove website
 
Click on the “Students” tab
  • then “Student Resources”
  • then “Follett Destiny”
 Under “Middle School” click “Pleasant Grove Middle School”
  • Upper right hand corner click “Log In”
Log in using user name and password.  Your name should appear in the upper right hand corner next to “Log Out.”
 
Using library search you can search by title, subject, keyword, author, or series.  Look each book over by clicking on the title.  Be sure and look to the far right to make sure there is at least “1 of 1 available.”  If the book you want says, “0 of 1 available” the book is not available for check out.
 
Once you find a book you want, click on the title.  To the far right of the title you will see a button that says, “Hold It.”  Once you click this button you will get a prompt that says, “Hold request for (title).”  Please note you will only be able to place two books on hold at a time.  Make sure you chose books you want to read by looking at the book description as well as the book subjects under “Explore!”
 
Once you have placed a hold and have allowed Mrs. Hadden (1) day to pull your book(s), you can stop by the library for your book(s).  Remember, Mrs. Hadden will only keep a book on hold for a week.     

Personal Book List
Top of Page

During the 2020 - 2021 school year searching for library books will take on a new look.  To help make book searches convenient and productive students will be able to make personal book lists through the Pleasant Grove Library Catalog.  When searching for library books you can select titles to read at a later date by placing them in your “My Personal List.”  The following is a step-by-step guide to show you how to place library books in a personal book list.
 
When using library search -
  • Find a library book you want to save and click on the title
  • Under the book description find the following prompt, “Selected List:  My Personal List.”  Next to this prompt is a button that says, “Add to this List.” 
  • Click the "Add to this List" and your selected book will be saved on your personal list as a possible read at a later date
  • When the time comes for you to choose another library book you can open your personal list and place one of your saved books on hold or you can do a library search for your next library book.
Having a “My Personal List” is just an easy way to save books you might want to read at a later date.
