Checking in and out books 2020-2021

COVID Middle School Library Check In/Out Hello,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year.  Though things may be different for everyone this school year, the one thing we will continue to do is check out library books!  

First, due to COVID 19, you will be looking for books through the online catalog, which is a catalog with all books that are in the library at Rootstown Middle School.   

To access the catalog please do the following:

-   Search

-   Click on the ISearch  button

-    In the tab “What are you looking for today?” click library catalog

-    Click on the drop down arrows on the All Libraries line

-    Click on Rootstown Middle School

-    Click on the ISearch button

-    Under All Fields click on how you want to search for books           

By:   Title                    Author                    Subject

-   On the space to the right where is says “library catalog” type in what you want to look for.           

Example:  Dogs

-   Hit the Search button 

-   On the left side of the screen will be a column where you can narrow down your search to       

Fiction, Non Fiction, etc. This will now show you the list of all of the books in the Middle School Library that pertain to dogs (or whatever you choose)

- You may then click on the book and most books will have a description of the book, under the summary tab, to see if the book interests you.  Once you choose a book, if you look just under the picture, you will see letters in red print.  Write down what is in red print, as well as the title and author of the book.   

- That is the information you need to bring to the library with you to check out your book(s)  Remember, you are allowed to check out two (2) books for two (2) weeks at a time if you would like.

You are welcome to personally come to the library as well to look for books


TO RETURN BOOKS:                     

Return your books to the library by the due date (within 2 weeks of checkout).  If you have overdue books, I will be sending out email to remind you to return your book(s).

If you have any questions please feel free to email me at

Sincerely, Mrs. Dulaney
