Highlands Middle School is excited about offering students two ways to check out digital/e-books! Check out these options below.
This e-book offering is exactly what the public library offers. The collection of books you will find on this site are all geared toward young adults and the books they like to read. Simply click the link above to be take to HMS' Overdrive website.
The students will log in to check out books on this site using a library card which is their first and last name and pin number (the number they use to check out a book from the library). If they have any problems, they just need to come to the HMS Media Center and see Mrs. Griffith or Mrs. Walburg.
When students first arrive at this website, they should check out the Getting Started section for helpful hints. Notice that there is a mobile app available also. Download Overdrive Media Console from the app store.
Also, Overdrive will work on I-Pads, your home computer, e-readers (Kindles, Nooks, etc.), smartphones, MP3 players and more. This product offers users versatility in the way that they can download and access e-books.
FollettShelfHMS Library now offers our students the capability to check out e-books!! Simply click on the link above and you will be taken to a part of Destiny's online catalog called FollettShelf where you can view the e-books our library has available and check them out to read on your home computer, smartphone, I-Pad or Droid tablet or anywhere you have internet access on a computer. You can log in to FollettShelf using the same username and password that you do here at school. If you have any problems, please see Mrs. Griffith or Mrs. Walburg for your username and password. Once you have logged in, you can browse our catalog and check out a book if you like. All books are available for checkout for 14 days. You can also download the Follett BryteWaveK12 app from the App store or Android Market. If you download the app, you need to type in the following code: wbb17684.
