Library Books-

Each student checked out 10 library books from the media center to continue reading at home during Distance Learning.  Please keep all library books in these bags until we return.  Our goal is to reuse these bags to check out books during summer months as well.  


E Books- We have around 750 eBooks that students can read on MackinVIA. We have a mix of single-user and multi-user eBooks.  And a mix of fiction and non-fiction popular ebooks.
