Resources for Remote Learning

We may not be able to work together in the same physical space, but the Upper School Library is still here to support you! How, you ask? Here are just a few of the ways:
  • Book recommendations;
  • Help locating and accessing eBooks, online articles, streaming videos, and other digital content;
  • Daily "open library" time;
  • Weekly book club meetings;
  • Research help, either via email, Google Hangout, or Google Chat.
The above list isn't exhaustive; if you need anything, even if it's just to chat, please reach out.  
The library will be virtually open every day! You can "drop in" to chat with Erika and other library users from 9:00-9:55 every day via this link.
Erika is also available to "meet" by appointment during school hours.
You can also engage with your fellow readers via Book Love: the Flipgrid Edition at!
