I finished my book, what do I read now?
We are missing all of you and wish we could check out books, "curbside," but the rules for our shelter at home situation makes this not possible. In the meantime, we want you to keep reading so check out these options!
1) Use your public library card (or have your parents apply for a temporary one online) by going to Cabarrus County Public Library. Enjoy their big selection of ebooks and audiobooks!
2) Read the ebooks available in Destiny Discover. Don't forget to log in!
6) Teen Book Cloud (You must use the username/password on your passwords doc in your student google drive) Contact me if you need help.
7) You can now use Sora, an audiobook/ebook borrowing platform(app). Log in through Clever on the school web page and enjoy reading/listening!
MORE COMING...keep checking back!
