Welcome to the Living Room Library!

Since it's a short school week, this week's LLR(now called the Small Virtual Library- SVL) does not feature any specific books or trailers. Instead, you can learn about New Year's around the world, check out the new 2021 Lone Star and Maverick books lists, and review the ways you can access books FREE via our online libraries available to ALL students!

Stay tuned for next week's LLR that features the 2021 Lone Star books!

Have a question? Need some help? Contact me via email (you will find my contact info at the bottom of the Smore) or checkout my library Blend page! (All students should have this on their Blend Dashboard and you can message me from there as well.)

Can't find a book you're looking for? You can request books (use the button at the bottom of the Smore) to be added to Sora, our online library.
