Library

Thanks to some Title I Funds, we have received lots of new books for the Spring.So follow the directions below to see them.

Go to the blue "links" word above, and Warrior Elementary OPAC (Online Public Access Catalog). This catalog has all the books and ebooksavailable in the school library and on the internet.

When using this OPAC link, you can reserve books that you would like your child to read by putting in their lunch number and then birthdate.

Also, our county has free ebooks (2 per student) for your child to read on their computers, tablets, or electronic devices with Overdrive!

 

IF you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

saramccombs@jefcoed.com or 379-5450 option 5

Thanks! Mrs. McCombs
