The Hillview library building may be closing for the summer, but our digital collection is getting a refresh thanks to the wild success of our annual Books Inc book fair and the generosity of the PTO, which is letting us use the profits for our collection!

Most of the books from our summer reading lists are available on OverDrive. (You’ll find the lists under the “Reading” tab above.) Other books by the authors on the list will count as well. Outgoing 8th graders keep their OverDrive accounts through the beginning of the school year (we only kick them out when we add the new sixth graders!)

One tricky thing is that your OverDrive ID is NOT the number on your ID card. (I know, that would make too much sense! We’re working on it for next year!) Contact Ms. Piombo AND Mrs. Mathenia if you need yours and one of us will get back to you. You’ll find more info on how to access OverDrive under the “Reading” tab above.

Back in November I posted about family audiobooks – they are great for those long summer car trips or even just long summer afternoons at home. Watch this space to hear more about our new audiobooks!

And we’d love to get your feedback on what digital content to add next!
