Partner Spotlight: Ruby B. Archie Public Library
Did you know that Danville Public Schools students have access to public library materials, online databases and streaming services through the division's partnership with the Danville Public Library? Through the Student Access Program, students of DPS can use their school ID to place holds on and check out materials from the Danville Public Library, and they can choose to pick up their borrowed material either at their school or at the Ruby B. Archie Library location. Students can also access e-resources including e-books, audiobooks, movies, music, online databases, and streaming services. Watch this video for more information on using a student ID card to access Overdrive (e-books and audiobooks) and Hoopla (e-books, audiobooks, graphic novels (comics), music, movies, and TV shows).
For more information about this program or assistance accessing materials, visit a DPS school library or call the Danville Public Library's Youth Services Department at (434) 799-5195.
