Public Library Card Sign Up

Residents of most NC counties can sign up for Digital Access to the Forsyth County Public Library. This will allow you access to all their e-books, audiobooks, digital movies, databases and all electronic resources. Only takes a few minutes of your time to do.

Parents: You will need to fill out a form for each student. Just use your NC Driver's License number to enroll.

Tech Tip of the Month

Find yourself typing the same things over and over in Google? One way around this in Google Docs is to take advantage of the application’s substitution utility located in the Tools Menu. This allows you to type a particular string of text and have it be replaced automatically with something different. Constantly type things like: Please check your OnCampus for all missing assignments. Type in COC (or any shorthand you will remember!) in the Replace column and in the With column place what you want the text to stand for. Now when you type COC in your Google Doc and hit the space bar, it will automatically add the sentence!

Go to Tools - Preferences and choose Substitutions to enable it!
