How do I find a book in the library media center?

Use Destiny (formerly, OPAC-Online Public Access Catalog) to search for books in the BEHS library media center. You can search by title, subject, keyword or author's name.

  • Fiction books are located on the courtside side of the media center. They are arranged alphabetically by the author's last name. Look for the signs located at the end of the bookshelves.
  • Graphic Novels are located on either side of the soft seating area next to the librarian's desk. They are alphabetized by series name (e.g. Spiderman books are under S).
  • Non-fiction and most reference books are located on the outside wall of the library media center. They are arranged by subject according to the Dewey Decimal System. Look for the call numbers listed in Destiny and then use the signs located at the end of the bookshelves to locate the book. Reference books may circulate overnight, and photocopying of limited pages is available.

How long can I keep a book?

You may keep a book for three weeks and renew it unless special arrangements have been made by your teacher to extend the circulation period. Reference books are available for overnight checkouts only. Fines for overdue books are charged at the rate of 5 cents a day.
