It's a most wonderful time of the year!
We've had fun, Hawks!
Click on the above title link for the the Library LibGuide
There are at least 3 different ways to earn FREE books this summer with those summer reading programs from B&N, Half Price Books, and the SA Public Library. Then you can also earn free frozen yogurt, Chuck E Cheese tokens, and HEB t-shirts.
There are also some great activities going on at the public library this summer. Dinosaur George, Happy Tails, Spikey Mikey, Lego Building, storytime, and come and go crafts.
Below is just a preview of what the page looks like! The link is in the title THE LIBRARY LIBGUIDE. You can also always find that page linked from the main school website or at the bottom of the newsletter.
Launchpad and Overdrive
Launchpad is where you access a lot of non-fiction, as well as BrainPop videos. You can get to Overdrive there, but on a personal device you can actually use the standalone Overdrive app.
Download the FREE APP Overdrive from your store of choice. The first thing you'll need to do is to add the NEISD library collection (I usually search by zip code). Then enter your student's login information (or your information if you've contacted me BEFORE SCHOOL IS OUT and we've created an account for you) and he or she will be able to check out all sorts of interesting titles from anywhere with wifi! Overdrive has lots of device specific help videos so it's easy!
