Library Resources

Access to electronic resources has changed a bit this year. In order to access all digital resources students (Overdrive ebooks or audiobooks, Pebblego early reader nonfiction reference, Tumblebooks, Encyclopedia Britannica reference sources, etc) will go to Launchpad. This can be accessed from the top right of the main NEISD page or from the library webpage.

Username: first initial + last name (up to 10 letters) + last 4 digits of ID number @ (no spaces or + signs when entering online)

Password: Full student ID number

Very soon I will have a little video made sort of showing you how that is done. I just didn't want to wait to get this out until I got that video finished. Watch the Harmony Hills ES Library FB page for when the video is posted!

If you as a parent would like to check out library materials (either print or electronic) please fill out this link and Ms. Oliverson will be in touch.

Fall Bookfair

Our fall bookfair will be held the first week in October. Look for flyers to go home late in the third week or early in the fourth week of September.

Your young readers will have several opportunities to walk through the library and choose books they may want to purchase. We can accept cash, checks made payable to Harmony Hills Elementary, or credit cards. We do have to collect sales tax at the bookfair (this is different than the monthly book clubs).

The volunteer sign up is already available at this link. We need your help to make this fair a success! There are slots the Friday before (Sept. 29) to help set up as well as all during the week of the fair to help with shopping, and then that Friday afternoon to help take it down. You do need to create a free login in order to sign up ... that is so the system can email you to remind you.

Literary Pumpkin Patch

For those who REALLY like to plan ahead ... the literary pumpkin patch will be held in late October (delivered the 23rd through the 25th). You'll get a hard copy of the flyer around bookfair but an early peek at the electronic copy can be found here.
