English 6th, 7th, and 8th: eBooks, Audiobooks, and more

2020-21 School Year Note

Unfortunately, this is a year where our library's print materials must remain on the shelves to meet our school's 2020-21 policies. 

This doesn't mean that there's not plenty to read! On this page you will find how to access our eBooks we've purchased, free eBooks from Sora by Overdrive (and Sora app), and eBooks, audiobooks, and more from the Las Vegas Clark County public library via Overdrive (and Libby app) or Hoopla. 

Note: The LVCCLD Quickstart card barcode number you have been assigned or given does not allow you to check out any materials in print or in person. You must go with your parent to a library locally to obtain a library card for print material check out. The Quickstart card barcode number only provides access to electronic resources. 

Ebooks from Follett Destiny Discover

Destiny is our library catalog. This link will take you to our Destiny Discover catalog where you can search "eBooks" in effort to omit our print books. Keep in mind that you must sign in with our school Google account in order to check a book out or open it.
