Online Help for Staff and Students


I've added info to the Link page on the MRHS Website. If you think of something students may need, please let me know, and I'll add it to the student page.

My Office Hours

Staff is free to email me anytime, and I'm happy to chat over the phone or do a video chat, too.

For students, I've posted this on the library website:
  • Online Office Hours for Mrs. LaRue: 9:00-10:00 am and 2:00-3:00 pm, Monday-Friday
  • You can also e-mail patricia.larue@adams12.org if you need help with your password, using any of our online resources, or if you'd like to set up a video call for one-on-one help. Get quick tech help here.

Lightbox books are interactive eBooks you can use with students. We have a few already like some of the novels classes read, but now we have access to other content eBooks, too. If you choose to use these, please don't post for all to see on your site. Share login info through Classroom or on a password protected page.

And, Audible is Free!

For as long as schools are closed, Audible is open. Kids and teens everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, including many classics we read at ⁦‪MRHS‬⁩ ! https://stories.audible.com/start-listen

More Research Options


  • Don't forget we have free access to Denver, Boulder and Longmont newspapers here. The username is mrhs1, and the password is mustangs.
  • World Book has given us even more free materials in addtion to what we already pay for.
  • We have extra free databases that are in addition to the Gale databases we already have.
  • Newsela is also free, for now.


World Book offers a Spanish language database, and many of these offer text-to-speech. A few of the free databases linked above have broken links or password requirements, as of now, and the district is working on fixing those.
