Checking out books from the Wildcat Library During Distance Learning



    Beginning December 2, 2020, Cerritos will start welcoming families to the Library for checkouts!


    The hours for pickup from the Library will be Wednesday and Friday from 8:30 am – 11:30 am. There is also going to be pick-ups available from the front office from 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm Wednesday and Friday. With that said, you may request a book via email M-F. 


    Here's how it will work: 


    1) Go to

    2) Click on Cerritos Elementary School

    3) Click on Catalog on the top left

    4) Search for the book you want by title, author's last name, subject, keyword or AR level.

    4) E-mail the Librarian at with the student's name in the subject line. In the body of the email, please include the student's teacher, student I.D. #, the title and author of the book. 


    Mrs. Amranyan will then send you an e-mail confirmation and a day and time of your pickup. Pick-ups will be from the side library door located closest to the staff parking lot.


    When you are ready to RETURN your library book(s), please wipe down the front and back covers with a disinfectant wipe and drop it in the box/bin labeled Book Returns.  There will be two drop off locations. One bin will be in the library and the other one will be in the front office. Returned books will be quarantined for two weeks before they can be checked in and re-shelved. 


    Thank you.
