Distance Learning Plan

Welcome to the Beverly Farms ES Media Center. The media center is now online!   To find the media center, open the Beverly Farms ES course tile, and you will see a button for the media center.  All media lessons will be posted on the media page in myMCPS Classroom.  All students will have  media lessons this year during the specials block. Media will follow an A/B week schedule alternating weeks with Guidance.  Below is the new schedule for both in-person and virtual learners.

Media Hours

  • We are operating virtually these days.  We are open 24 hours, 7 days a week in myMCPS Classroom.  Please visit the Media Page in myMCPS Classroom.

Holds-To-Go

Beginning the week of April 12, the Library Media Center will be offering "Holds to Go." In-person students may place up to five books on hold each week they are in the building. Books will be delivered to classes by either Miss Francis or Mrs. Schnure. Virtual students can pick up their books on Wednesdays. All information and instructions will be posted here next week.  An instructional video will also be shared. We ask that all students return books they have at home so we can keep our books circulating to new readers! Ebooks and audiobooks are always available in SORA.

Destiny (Media Center Catalog) 

  • Search for books from home.  Starting next week, students will be able to place books on hold from the school library.  In addition, there are many eBooks available!
  • See what books you still have checked out.  Many books were checked out on March 13.  Please keep looking for the books you brought home and bring them back so others can enjoy them!
