ebooks have been infused into the High School and Junior High Libraries! Students learned how to download them to their own devices during lunch and after school. Becky Lechner, (Jr. High) and Jody McQuillan from the high school have been working on adapting this into NPS’s library system for 2 years. Students can choose their selections from Baker-Taylor’s ”Magic Wall” linked to the Senior/Jr High Collection. They then can download the book for 2 weeks just like the “hard copy” book collection. This should offer our students access to e-books 24 hrs. a day extending into the summer. Many grants, businesses, and Foundations helped to make this possible. See the Norfolk Senior High Media web page for a list.
