Hello from Ms. Thomson
Hello Kenny Families!
I am Heather Thomson, the Kenny Media Center Associate Educator. I am excited to share my love of books with Kenny students!  I will be in the Media Center Monday-Thursday 9am-2pm.
Students will come to the Media Center once a week with their homeroom teachers to check out books. Students in kindergarten and first grade will be allowed to check out one (1) book per week, second and third graders can check out two (2) books per week, and fourth and fifth graders can check out three (3) books per week.
I am happy to offer suggestions to students and also take suggestions for books you would like to see in the Media Center!  Please remember that families are responsible for lost or damaged library materials. Thank you!
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer in the media center, please feel free to contact me at heather.thomson@mpls.k12.mn.us
Welcome from the District



Dear parent/guardian and student of Kenny Community School,


Hello and welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  My name is Heather Thomson and I am the Media Center AE at Kenny.  I am excited for another year of book check out with Kenny kids!

Your school library media center uses a web-based catalog and circulation system called Destiny that allows you to search for books, videos, websites, and many other items in your school’s library collection anytime, anywhere that you have internet access. 

Destiny also tracks all the materials you have checked out at any school in the district. 
If you checked out library books and/or textbooks that you did not return, they will continue to appear under your name. 

Learning materials are expensive and we all must be responsible for their use and return. If you have school materials that you have not returned from previous school years, please return them to the library media center. Materials from other schools will be sent to the school they belong to. Students are financially responsible for lost or damaged MPS materials, and may not have the privilege of attending non-academic events if these items have not been taken care of.  Student Library material check out may also be put on hold if a student has too many overdue/lost materials in order to meet the state standard of being responsible for shared resources.

If you have questions or need to pay for lost or damaged materials please see Ms. Thomson in the library media center.
