FDR MS/HS Library
Ready to go digital?
Let us know how it goes, and if you have titles to suggest, you can add them via the library website or at the link below.
Happy Digital Reading!
OverDrive: Digital Books & Audiobooks
How it Works
The books in OverDrive function like real books: once one is borrowed no one else can use it.
You can access OverDrive two ways: via the library catalog or directly from OverDrive. All the links you need are on the library website, but also here:
You can read on your laptop OR download the OverDrive app. Either way, you log in with your amersol username (first part of your email) and amersol password. If the log-in doesn't work for you, please email Mrs. Ducharme.
Once you are logged in, you can borrow books. You can borrow THREE books at a time, and you may keep them for TWO weeks. When the time limit expires, the book will disappear from your shelf.
Please watch the screencast below for more directions (7 min)
Flipster: Digital Magazines
How it works
Open the Flipster program HERE
Get the password HERE (same as EBSCO - must be logged into amersol)
You can read on the computer or get the Flipster app.
Check out the screencast below to see how it looks:
Have you met Nicola?
He's up to speed with shelving, processing magazines, and many other areas of his new library job. He's also in charge of loaning out the Chromebooks.
His interests include paintball and techie stuff...but he doesn't have too much free time lately - he's taking NIGHT CLASSES every day after school at ISIL.
You can donate your gently used books to the library any time between now and April 28th. For every TWO books you donate, you get one ticket to spend at the swap.
On day 1 of the swap --> you can only get books with TICKETS
On day 2 of the swap --> you can use tickets or cash to get books (1 book = 1 sol)
WHEN: Thursday and Friday, April 27/28
WHERE: On the green in front of the library
HOURS: from 8:00 - 3:30
Book Week 2017
Each contest will have TWO winners! One from Middle School and one from High School.
Tuesday, May 2 - BOOK TRAILER contest
At lunch, in the library
We'll show the book trailers students have created
Students: Prepare a 1-3 minute video that highlights why someone should read one of your favorite books. The winning video will be engaging, mention the title and author, and tell just enough about the story to make us want to read it.
Wednesday, May 3 - Character Dress up contest
To enter the contest, come to the library to have your photo taken
Students and Teachers: Dress up like a character in a book. The winning costume will be the most creative, the most similar to the character, and will show great effort.
* Teachers - we will choose a winning teacher for this category. The prize is a loaded Starbucks card.
Thursday, May 4 - Eat Your Book contest
Roosevelt Commons: Trust Dining Hall
Students: Create a food item inspired by a book. It can be a decorated cake or other edible item, or a dish eaten by the characters. It can be anything that connects food and a particular book.
BRING the book and the food item to Roosevelt Commons at LUNCHTIME. No refrigeration is available, so plan ahead. Be sure to label your item, so we know what we're looking at.
Friday, May 5 - Gamer Day
In the library and Little Theater
Board games and card games in the library at breaks and lunch. Also, video games in the Little Theater at lunch times.
