Have you ever wished that you could check your child’s Wilson Library account to see if
they have any books checked out? Have you ever wanted to search to see if a book is
available at Wilson’s library? Or have you wished there was an easy way to find kid-
friendly websites for research or for topics of interest?

We are delighted to announce that Forest Hills has recently acquired the capability to
give you all of those options, and more Wilson Library, and password-protected access to
your student’s library account are now available online!

To access the Wilson Library Catalog of books:
    Go to http://fhsdlibrary.foresthills.edu
    Click on Wilson Elementary School

Using the Library Search (left side) you can search our catalog, read description of
books, see pictures of many of our titles and more! Anytime you see a WebPath
Express icon, you may click on it to be directed to kid-friendly Web pages on that topic.

In Destiny Quest (left side), you can see what is new in Wilson’s library, and also see
what books are most popular with Wilson students! Additionally, you can view
information on Wilson books, and read reviews and recommendations written by other
Wilson kids. (Our students will be introduced to this soon.)

To access Your Child’s Account:
    Go to http://fhsdlibrary.foresthills.edu
    Click on Wilson Elementary School
    Click on Login (upper right)
    Enter your student’s username which is their first and last name with no space.
      (Note: This will be their legal name, as entered into the district registration.)
    Enter your student’s password, which is their student ID number … the same
      number they use in the cafeteria at lunch time.
    Click on Login

By clicking on the My Info tab (top left) you can see what books are checked out to your
child, when the books were checked out, when they are due and if any books are overdue.
By clicking on the Catalog tab, you can search the Wilson Library catalog, and use
Destiny Quest as described above. Additionally, you can use WebPath Express to find
teacher-tested, kid-friendly Websites on almost any topic.
We hope you enjoy these upgrades to our library resources. As always, if you have any
questions or comments, please feel free to contact our Media Center staff by email or
phone. patti.lewis@foresthills.edu; becky.monahan@foresthills.edu 231-3240 x 2705]

Enjoy,
