Benson High School Library Plan for Hybrid Learning

Summary of policies and procedures for Students Enrolled in Hybrid and CDL:


  • Library and textbook room will not be available for drop in student visits to align with cohort protocols.

  • Individual students can arrange with the teachers and library during class time to have materials delivered to the classroom.

  • Materials will be checked out in advance and delivered to classrooms whenever possible to help minimize cross cohort contamination. While fully online students will have access to the same titles via the library catalog or similar digital databases.  

  • Library lessons, curriculum consulting, and community building will continue remotely, or in person as appropriate and applicable.


These changes will be communicated to students and staff via an asynchronous library orientation, email, or staff instructional time. There is also a copy of this outlined on the library website under the tab labeled ( Hybrid Library Resources).

Students in CDL and Hybrid can continue to request materials via email or the Google Form. They will pick up materials at the textbook window or have them delivered.
