Summer Reading @ the HMS Library!

The HMS Library is all about reading over the summer. We look forward to supporting your child's thirst for reading by:
  • Providing 24/7 access to our large eBook collection of over 400 exciting titles. To borrow, your child will need three things (in addition to a device):
  1. Access to the HMS Library web site which has the link to OverDrive (our eBook provider).
  2. A library card number, which is the student's HMS Library number (7 digits long; begins with the expected year of graduation).
  3. A PIN, which is the student's last name, all lower case (case-sensitive).


Happy Reading!

Our Newest YEF Grant: 4C Studio @ HMS!

Mike Arsenault, Tracy Weinrich and Merry Stuhr received a Yarmouth Education Foundation grant to convert the HMS Library's old periodicals storage room into a wonderful new space where students can actively participate in the 4Cs:
  1. Creativity
  2. Collaboration
  3. Communication
  4. Critical Thinking

This space will be completed over the summer so that students can begin using it in September! (Watch the YouTube video below for a sneak preview of the concept that is becoming reality.)

Thank you, YEF!
