September is Library Card Drive Month
Students will have the opportunity to sign-up for a Sacramento Library Card on campus, Thursday, Aug. 30th, 11am-1pm, during both lunches. This will allow students to not only access print resources at the local Library but also give them access to all of the Sacramento Library Databases and the new Libby App from their own homes! This is great for ebook reading and those research projects. We want students using vetted sources, not just Google.
Stop by the Library Card Drive Table in front of the Library, during both lunches, to pick up an application for one. Mrs. Casey will also have lots of local library info for teens, freebies, and treats. See you there!
