I am excited to share with students and families a vast collection of free ebooks, audiobooks, magazines and videos. Junior Library Guild is offering audiobooks and eBooks with simultaneous and unlimited streaming through June 30th. There are new meet-up features; What are you Reading? and Aiden Tyler, Quaran-Teen, a unique and original story written and read weekly by Rex Ogle. We’ll meet after he shares his new chapters to discuss them ourselves. I am delighted to assist students, families, and teachers with these programs. 

Let’s talk,
