Margaret Ann Montgomery, Librarian
Welcome to the DeSoto Central High School Library! Check out all of the great resources on this page.
Students pay $25 in the school office to receive a device to use at school and at home. Parents can also pay for devices on Revo Pay. Students may pick up their devices in the school library. Students should login to the device at least twice at school before taking it home. The device will be able to work properly at home once this is done. Students use their username and password to login.
Usernames are the first letter of your first name lowercase, the first letter of your last name lowercase followed by their last six digits of your MSIS/lunch number.
The password is Jaguars followed by six digits for your date of birth.
All library books and textbooks that have not been returned must be returned or paid for in the library at DCHS. If a book is lost, it can be paid for with the exact cash in the school library. This includes any books or textbooks from any DCS.
If you have a book or books that you would like to be ordered for our school library, give Ms. Montgomery the title of the book and author's full name in an email.
If you would like to request a book to checkout, please send your name, the book title and author's full name in an email to Ms. Montgomery.
