Welcome to Knox Gifted Academy's Library!LibraryLike the rest of KGA, the library isn't your typical elementary school library. Our books are just a part of the library experience! We have a dedicated makerspace, aimed at introducing our students to crafts and techniques they may not get to experience elsewhere.The makerspace is currently under contstruction. Please check back for more exciting details when everything is up and running.Library Checkout GuidelinesStudents can check out two books at a time, including our selection of e-books. If a book is lost or damaged, a fee will be entered into Infinite Campus. Students will not be allowed to check out additional books until the fee is paid. Please pay all fees via InTouch in Infinite Campus.No Cash or Checks are accepted.
Take a look at the books you have checked out already, or put a school library book on hold to come and check out later, using Destiny Discover.
The "log in" button will be in the top right-hand corner.
- The username will be the student's number (ex. s123456), and the password is their usual password for how they log in to their computer.
This will give the student access to what is available in our library, as well as to our eBook selection. If they click on the menu (the three lines at the top-left), they can find the books they have checked out already, the books they have on hold, as well as any fines they may have.
Students will need to click on "Check Out" after finding a book they are interested in. This will give them access to the full book, whereas "Open" will give a small excerpt.
The Destiny Discover app is also available, so you can have access to these things on your phone or tablet.
