New books arriving daily

Boxes of new books are arriving in the media center. This year's focus is on fiction, social and natural sciences, geography and history. I've continued to add to the ebook collection (available from FollettShelf on Destiny) which should work on your tablets and smartphones. Teachers use your email login for both username and password. Download a book and enjoy. If you need help setting up, come on by or check our helper page.

We're up to 9,653 ebooks in the collection, some of the non-fiction as unlimited copies. As always, give us your suggestions of great reads and resources for our students.

We may not be Elm Street's Scuppernong Books, but we probably have something you want to read. Check us out before the holidays!

What's APP-ening?

Genius Scan will turn your smartphone/tablet into a portable scanner. Uses your camera to create .pdf documents that you can send to Evernote, DropBox or just email (and others). Great tool!
