Teacher Edition


We made it through the first part of the year! Now that we have our feet underneath us, here are just a few reminders.

Addition Library Items

As I build the library collection, I need your help. I would like to know items you feel Trent students and teachers can benefit from. Please feel free to fill out this Google form with your request. I cannot guarantee that I can purchase everything requested, but I will do my best.

Chromebooks and iDevices

Please remember:

  • All devices and Chromecarts need to be brought back by 4:00.
  • Students can bring back the carts, but you need to be the one to turn in iDevices and keys.
  • If you check out a cart for only part of the day, please make sure and return it at the end of your scheduled time. Most of the time there is someone who reserves it for the rest of the day. If you cannot bring it down, go ahead and reserve for the rest of the day.)
  • Turn in checkout sheets to the basket on Andy's desk.


All students have been added to Mackinvia so the generic username and password have been turned off.

The student's username and password are:

UN: student ID

PW: 8-digit birthday

The teacher's username and password are:

UN: district network username (email w/o

PW: district network password (unique to each staff member)


Many of you personally use Overdrive. Recently our library number changed. Here is how to do it:

- District network username (email w/o

- First letter of last name and first letter of first name must be CAPITALIZED.

Let me know if this does not work. If you do not know what Overdrive is, come in and I can help!
