Library Media Center

Welcome to the Northview Library

Mission Statement

The mission of the Ankeny Library Media Program is to enable all students to be independent learners who are skilled users of information, and who appreciate literature and other creative expressions.

Hours:  7:50 AM-3:45 PM

Checkout Information

Books: Books are checked out to students for 10 school days. You may renew a book if it’s not on hold. Log into Destiny Discover, our library catalog, to renew before the due date. ( After the due date you have to come to visit us in the library!)

Holds: If we don’t have what you want, you can put it on hold and we can also help you request it from another Ankeny library.

Textbooks:  Checkout period depends on supplies (e.g. French books can be checked out for 3 days but social studies books can be checked out all year)

Overdue notices:  Students receive many email reminders. These are sent 3 days before the book is due, 1 day before the book is due, and once each week until the book is returned. Parents will receive an email weekly to help their student remember to return any overdue or lost library books. Here is a video, Directions to Renew Your Library Book, so you can learn how to renew your books on your own. If you need help renewing your book, please stop and ask for help in the library.

Fines: $.10/day overdue up to $5.00 per book. If a book is lost, students are charged for the full replacement price of a library bound copy of that book. If a book has not been returned or renewed after 65 days, our circulation system will automatically mark it as lost and a replacement fine will be charged. Fines for overdue or lost books can be paid in the library, using cash (exact change is needed as we cannot give change or keep change) or online using the district online payment system.
