Welcome Back & Happy New School Year!

Faculty Book Club - Yes! Woohoo! Finally!

Come one, come all! Want to get back in touch with your students after the long summer break?


Read something they might like to read.


Feel free to choose books from any level and share what you are reading with your students. Ask Mrs. Weaver for an I'm Reading... sign to post in your classroom. Discussion date for the end of the semester is TBD.

New Books!

SRC New Books AugSept 2015

Improved Access to the Library Catalog & OverDrive eBooks Coming Soon!

In an effort to make the library resources easier to access, the library catalog usernames and passwords will be updated to match those you use for PowerSchool.

Signing into the catalog enables:

  • place books on hold
  • create wish lists ("baskets")
  • write reviews


Also, access to the OverDrive ebook collection will be integrated into our library catalog software so that you will benefit from a single sign-on process. Meaning, if you log into the catalog using your PowerSchool username and password and select an ebook to read, you will be directly connected to the OverDrive app without needing to sign in separately to check out a book.


The changes to your library catalog usernames and passwords will occur next week. The OverDrive integration will occur within the next two months.

Legos Needed

If you have any extra Lego pieces around the house, please consider donating them to the SRC. There will be a bin for donations in Mrs. Weaver's office.
