Lost, Damaged, & Unreturned Book Fines:
If your student receives a past due notice or book replacement fine notice, you can make a payment in-person at Castello's front office. You may also send a payment with your child's teacher or student to the library. Upon receiving, a receipt for your records will be sent home. Library accounts with unreturned books and/or book replacement fines will be temporarily restricted.
Cash or Check are the only forms of payment accepted. If possible, when sending cash please send the exact amount. Checks should be made payable to: H.C.C. Elementary
Library Book Catalog:
Students may access our library book catalog directly from their EGUSD portal. Once logged in, they may click on the "FOLLETT" icon. This will redirect them to our school's homepage. From here, click on "Catalog" (top section), and then click on "Destiny Discover" (located on the left-hand side). Students can view library books available for check out, they can review their current and past due library books, and they can also enjoy additional Learning Resources.
USED book donations are always welcomed. Gently used, K-6th grade, books to be accepted.
NEW book donations are also welcomed. Below is a wish list of titles requested by some of our students. All books purchased will ship directly to our school library. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
