There are a lot of exciting things going on in the Learning Center this month. We have just received our first order of eBooks that are accessible through our Library Catalog. The catalog can be searched either at school or from home through Bush’s webpage. To access an eBook, visit our catalog, type in ebook in the search box, click on keyword and choose a book from the results. Next, click on the title of the book you want to read and then click on Read Online. It’s as simple as that.
