Library Volunteers

Hello Roadrunner Parents! I hope that your children have had a great start to the new school year! I am going paperless with my request for volunteers this year! I am sending a link to a form for you to fill out online. I would love to have 2-3 volunteers each day to help put books away, check out, check in, etc. Timing is flexible. If you would like to help out in our library this year, please click on the link below. (You may need to push ctrl+click to activate the link.)

Read Books from our eLibrary at home!!!

Please see the directions below on how to access our eBooks collection.

There are a few different ways to get to our eLibrary; choose one of the following. Whichever way you decide to use, you will be asked to type in a username and password. Students will use the same login information that they use in the computer lab at school. Their username is the first 5 letters of last name, first 3 letters of first name, 3 digit number (This can be found in Skyward if your student doesn’t remember.) Their password is hse, their 6 digit birthdate. For example: Kristin Hicks would be…

Username: hickskri000

Password: hse110415

* Go directly to the site. The address is:

* Our eLibrary can be accessed through our online catalog. The address is: Choose Cumberland Road Elementary School. On the left side, click on the tab that says FollettShelf.

* Our eBooks can also be read on iPads and Android tablets. You will need to download the Follett Digital Reader app. (It is FREE!) The first time you logon, you will need to put in our Follett Shelf address, which is wbb14202 (listed above).

If you would like some tips on using the eLibrary or help checking out, you can read the Follett Quick Reference Guide. It is listed as one of the books available. Some of the books in our library have unlimited simultaneous access; this means that these titles are always available. You will know which titles these are because they have a green tag at the top with an infinity symbol on it.
