    Checkout/Curbside pick-up during COVID-19 school closure

    Would you like to check out books from the Roxhill Library?  We will begin a system to put books on hold online and then pick them up at Roxhill.  From now through Wednesday, October 28, follow these instruction to put up to FIVE books on hold for pick-up:

    • Go to www.seattleschools.org
    • Select the blue ‘Student Family Portals’ tab at the top/middle of the page.
    • In the middle of the next page, click on the blue ‘Clever, the Student Portal’ tab.
    • Select ‘Log in with Active Directory.’ (If you have never logged onto Clever before, you may be prompted to use your SPS email address/password.)
    • Click on the ‘Library Catalog’ icon.
    • Scroll down to ‘Washington’ for ‘Location,’ and begin typing in ‘Roxhill.’  Select ‘Roxhill Elementary, Seattle, WA.’
    • In the top right-hand corner, click on ‘Log in.’
    • Enter your username (your SPS email address WITHOUT ‘@seattleschools.org’) and your password.
    • Use the search bar at the top to search for books by topic, title, or author’s name.
    • Click the blue ‘Hold’ button to reserve a book.  If the green ‘In’ tab is on the top left-hand corner of the listing, the book should be available for you to pick up. Ignore the alert that says that the book is available now and that you should pick it up by a given date. You will pick up the book on either November 3 or 5.
    • You may ‘hold’ up to five books.
    • Drive by and pick up your books from the Roxhill covered playcourt either on Tuesday, November 3, from 11:30-1:00 or on Thursday, November 5, from 2:30-4:00. (Your books will have a rubber band around them, and your name will be on a sheet of paper attached to the bundle of books.)  This is also a good time to return any library books you may still have at home!
    • If you have trouble placing your holds, email Mr. Robert, cjrobert@seattleschools.org, and he will place the holds for you!
