Students and faculty have been busy checking out the latest eBooks from the Pike library. Students were invited to participate in BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) day and download to download Destiny Quest and learn how to access the eBook collection remotely. The response has been remarkable with over 400 eBook transactions just this year. There are plans to expand our eBook collection so both faculty and students can access their favorite books from any location with Internet access.
