The MS and HS libraries purchase ebooks for student use. If you search the middle school catalog and see a book with a label Axis 360 it is an ebook.

If you want to search out just ebooks (great for the summer because you don't need to go to the library to check out or return) you can go to this link;

To check out an ebook through Axis 360 a student will need to know their lunch number - which is also their library number. All students in 4th grade have a 5 digit number (although they typically only say the last two or three numbers).

All 4th graders start with 24_ _ _. This is their Library Card ID. Their pin is their last name.

The following link gives specific information about what devices can be used and how to download the app - AXIS 360.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me or bring your device to the library during summer hours.
