Bearport eBooks Now Available!

Are there times when another student has a book that you REALLY want, and you don't feel as if you can wait for it?  If this has happened to you, we may now have a solution to that problem.  Our library now subscribes to many eBooks through the Bearport Publishing Company.  All eBooks can be viewed from any computer with Internet access.  You can access our ebooks by going to The School District of New London website, and then clicking on "Library and Resources."  The link, Bearport eBooks, is in the left column.  Please see Mrs. Young for the username and password.  Let me know what you think of them!  The same books are also available in hardcover at the library.

After reading her book The Brilliant Fall of Gianna Z, they were able to ask her questions about her writing and her life. View highlights from the Skype visit below. A special thank you to Kate Messner for taking the time to talk with us!
