New Books!

SRC New Books AugSept 2015

Improved Access to the Library Catalog & OverDrive eBooks Coming Soon!

In an effort to make the library resources easier to access, the library catalog usernames and passwords will be updated to match those you use for PowerSchool.

Signing into the catalog enables you to:

  • place books on hold
  • create wish lists ("baskets")
  • write reviews

Also, access to the OverDrive ebook collection will be integrated into our library catalog software so that you will benefit from a single sign-on process. Meaning, if you log into the catalog using your PowerSchool username and password and select an ebook to read, you will be directly connected to the OverDrive app without needing to sign in separately to check out a book.

The changes to your library catalog usernames and passwords is complete. The OverDrive integration will occur within the next two months.

Legos Needed

If you have any extra Lego pieces around the house, please consider donating them to the SRC. There will be a bin for donations in Mrs. Weaver's office.
