CHECK OUT OUR eBOOKS!!!
Friends, you can still visit our library while at home!! Click on the link (blue words) below to access our library collection with Destiny, our library’s online catalog. Here you can do a search for our eBooks (electronic books) which you can read from home on your computer! :)
When on Destiny, use the find box to type in the word eBooks or you can narrow your search and include a topic. Here is an example: sports eBook.
Find an eBook that looks interesting and click on it. It will take you to an information card. Sometimes you will find the word “open” in the little box in the upper right side and you just click it. If it is not there, look at the information list on the card and click where it says, “Click here to access eBook”.
LET'S HAVE SOME FUN!!!!
