Greetings as you fly solo! Here are tips to help you stay connected to reading through our library's electronic resources.
We have more than 250 electronic books (ebooks) and a small sampling of short chapter-book audiobooks. You may check them out one at a time for 1 week (grades K-2) or 2 weeks (grades 3-5) by accessing our library catalog and your library account. Here's how!
Reminder to 4th and 5th grades: You have a sticker in your student planner that lists all the information you need for remote access to our online subscription databases.
This second week of June, all students will find more ideas about how to be safe and responsible while using computers and other tech communication devices. Students' Library Seesaw accounts will feature a lesson on finding a balance between online and offline activities. Stop and think online, Discovery Eagles!
Discovery Eagles now have access to more than 5,000 interactive electronic books (ebooks) from the publishing company Capstone. These ebooks are available to multiple readers at once and have narrators with pleasant voices. Here's how to get started:
Have fun exploring!
Some of your favorite authors and illustrators offer read-alouds, projects, drawing lessons, and more on the website Scholastic Learn at Home. It has free resources across all subject areas for grades K-5. Enjoy!
For some educational, creative and entertaining content from the National Center for Family Literacy, check out the website Wonderopolis at http://wonderopolis.org/
This safe, informative and thought-provoking website explores interesting questions about the world. It's designed to get you and your family to think, talk and find "a-ha!" moments together. Emerging readers may need help with the questions and navigating the answers, but there's something here for curious minds of ALL ages, no matter what you wonder about!
Audible offers a free collection of audiobooks for children and families at Stories.Audible.com. The site is accessible from computers, tablets and smartphones without a log-in or an Audible membership. The books are searchable by age-appropriate interest level; some are also available in Spanish, French, Italian, German and Japanese. Give it a listen!

Warmest thanks to the generous Discovery families who responded early to our 2020 PTSA library donation program! Several donated books arrived before the March school closure, and our Amazon wish list shows additional purchases. We are grateful for the books already ordered, and if you have them at home, please hold them until school starts. The “Gift A Book” program will resume next year, when this year’s student donors will be included in the recognition and prize drawings. Thank you so much!
