    How to Use the Library from Home as we Social Distance

    Dear students and parents,

    As we continue our learning from home, I hope this webpage will give you ideas of places to go for reading, exploring, and enhancing your classes.  I will feature a different sites to explore—about books, authors, places, animals, history, or just for fun. Even though you can’t check out library books right now, you will still be able to read or listen to some great books!   During this time, companies have generously offered to provide their books free of charge for you to read either digitally or by listening (audibly).  So, take a look at the links below and enjoy a great book still!  Please let me know if you need help accessing these online resources or need a good book recommendation. I'd be happy to help.   See email below.
