Welcome Back! Literacy Across the Curriculum

Include the library in your student goals for the year. We can tell you how many books students borrowed during the year. We can work with your students and have them publish their book recommendations in our teen newsletter. Are you planning a research project? Now is the time to book an appointment for your class. Arrange a series of lessons in the library to have your students utilize our databases for research and information literacy skills. Please check our online calendar to see our availability. We look forward to seeing you!

Destiny Discover, Novel Databases, BrainPop and more

The FHS library subscribes to a large collection of ebooks and many different databases. To find our ebooks, explore the Destiny Discover link in our catalog. Look under eBooks and Interactive books to see our full collection. For help, you can visit the library in room B06 or call us at extension 6060.

We also subscribe to Britannica Encyclopedia and many different Gale Databases including Infotrac and Opposing Viewpoints in Context. See the entire list by following the link on the Articles and Database Libguide. BrainPop is a new subscription available to all teachers and students too. It is very interactive and fun for students. See Ms. Bayer for the teacher access codes.
