Media Center FAQs

    How long can I have a book? 

    Books are due three weeks after checkout.

    How do I know when my book is due? Check the date on the media center column at the time of book check out for the date it will be due. Check your account with the Destiny app or Destiny online.

    What if the item I am looking for is already checked out?
    You can place a hold on an item you wish to have in person at the circulation desk or through Destiny online.

    Can I renew my own materials without having to come into the library?
    Books can be renewed one time in person or online through Destiny.  Make sure to download the Destiny Quest app for iPhone or Android devices for quick access!

    What are the overdue fines for materials returned after the due date?
    We do not charge fines for overdue books. At the end of the year books not returned (lost) must be paid for according to the replacement value. Lost book fees will stay on your account from year to year until paid.

    When will overdue notices be sent?
    Notices are emailed automatically every Thursday afternoon at 4:00pm.

    How can I make payments for my fees? Fees for lost books can be paid in the main office or media center. Online payment is not available at this time.



    Universal Search I am trying to open an eBook in MackinVIA, but I get a pop-up for Universal Search and it asks for a Username and Password. What is it?
    Unfortunately, some of our eBooks still open up through our previous system in so you must use the username and password you use for Destiny. This is FirstInitialMiddleInitialFirst3LastNameGradYear and 00Student ID#







    I sustained damage to my Chromebook. Now what?
    Damaged Chromebooks should be brought to the media center circulation desk. We will issue you a loaner Chromebook while your damaged Chromebook is repaired. You will be notified via the office once your Chromebook is repaired. If you do not have insurance on your Chromebook, you will need to pay the repair cost before picking up your repaired Chromebook.

    I need another Chromebook charger. How do I get one?
    OEM Chromebook chargers can be purchased from the media center circulation desk for $20 cash or check (payable to ISD #277). Non-OEM chargers can be purchased through Amazon.

    My Chromebook case is very dirty. Is there anything I can do?

    Ms. Trapp had success using Spray 'n Wash on the case and then washing it in a front-loading washing machine (or top-loading without the agitator) and then air-drying.
