Digital Days Free Reading Resources
Take time to relax and read! Here are a few ideas to help you find reading resources and programs to participate in.
The DMS Readers Reward program ends on April 30th! There are rewards for reading 5 books and additional rewards for reading 10 books! Students who read 10 books and complete one of the small books projects are automatically invited to the Book Mobile visit on May 6! Each student will be able to choose a free book from the Book Mobile. Here is a link to the Reading Log. You may share your completed Readers Reward log and project with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Access eBooks for free from Destiny, the DMS Media Catalog. You can read a book on any device. Read the directions as some of the books need to be checked out and others can be read by more than one person at a time.
Access ebooks from the Online Research Library. Directions are on the document that is linked in the above paragraph. Remember to use the databases as your BEST source of information when you research.
Do you have a Branch Out Gwinnett County Public Library card? This card provides staff and students with a card that waives overdue fines. You also get access to all of their digital resources including eBooks!
- The student will then be able to use their student ID as username and their birthday (MM/DD) as the password on the Libby app or to access any of the digital materials available at gwinnettpl.org.
