Checking out Library Books During Distance Learning


During distance learning, DJUSD students from any school may check out books from the Patwin Elementary Library. The checked-out books can be picked up at Patwin Elementary during specific distribution times.

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

1 - Go to the Patwin Online Catalog

(It is important that you only choose books that we have at Patwin - watch the video below for more instructions)
2 - Search for the book you want to borrow.

3 - Once you know what book you want to borrow, fill out the Patwin Library Request Form

Once the Patwin Library Staff has processed your reserve, you will receive an email with information about when to pick-up your book.

You may pick up your reserved library books at Patwin’s front parking lot, curbside, on Thursdays between 2-3:30pm. Books not picked up after two weeks will be returned to the library. Books will not be stored in the office, they must be picked up during the distribution time. Please submit requests by Tuesday for pick-up on Thursday.

Our last distribution before Winter Break will be on Thursday, December 17th, 2020. There will be no curbside pickup during Winter Break. We will resume on Thursday, January 7th, 2021.

Books may be returned to any open DJUSD library, however we encourage you to return our books to our school. We now have a blue book return bin out in front of the school where you may return books at any time! 

For other questions, please contact the Patwin Library by emailing Ms. McCutcheon and Ms. Yang.

All Students:

The Yolo County Public Library is another great place to get books. They have physical books and ebooks available. If you do not have a library card already, you can get one over the Internet. They offer curbside pick-up for physical books, and you can download their ebooks directly to your phone, Kindle, computer or other device.
