Students may use the Follett app on their OUSD dashboard account to view books in our library. These books may be reserved on Follett, and picked up from the library.

Another option is to check out e-books using their Overdrive account (SORA). This app is located on their student Dashboard account.

Library Media Center Mission

Welcome to Santiago Charter Middle School's Library Media Center. Our mission is to promote information literacy for 21st learning by integrating education and technology. This section was created to provide students with a safe portal to the Internet and its resources. The resources give 24/7 access to instructional tools for a variety of educational endeavors. These resources were found for the students by the library staff, teachers and students in an effort of collaboration and team work to supply students with the most user friendly tools. To make a suggestion, e-mail the SCMS Librarian

Hi Santanas!

Here is a video that explains how to place a library book on hold. Once a book has been placed on hold, it will be sent to your English teacher or I may send you an email via your school Google account to ask you to stop by the library when it is ready. Books checked out may be kept for two weeks. Happy reading!
