The screen should look like this:
If it doesn't you may need to troubleshoot or wait for Ms.Stuart or Ms.Alonso.

Type in your last name and click go

Click on your name to get to your account. If more than one person shares your last name (including your family), make sure you click on the correct account. If you accidentally click on the wrong name, start over by hitting the reset button. 

Now you are ready to start scanning the Town School barcode of the book(s) you want to check out. Make sure the barcode you are scanning is the sticker barcode that says Town School on it and not the book's printed barcode.  Barcodes are most often found on the top back cover or inside front flap of books.  

Once you scan your book, check to make sure the title appears under "Checked Out" before you scan your next book.  When you are finished scanning all the barcodes of the books you are checking out, make sure to click the Reset button to clear your account from screen and prepare the self-checkout system for the next library patron.
