Summer Reading Books

If you are having trouble finding your summer reading book in a book store, don't forget that you can go to the customer service desk and have them order it for you. Give them the ISBN that is on your summer reading list. They can order it for you to pick up in the store with no shipping charges. Or order online from reputable websites such as Amazon or Barnes & Noble. I ordered the sophomore summer book from Amazon and it shipped the next day. See you in August!

The Lightning Thief is a Volunteer State Book Award (VSBA) nominee and is on several school reading lists. The middle school kids will tell you that Riordan's books are #1.

New Look of TEL

The look of the Tennessee Electronic Library portal has changed. If you access it from your url line or from the left sidebar on the library website you will see the changes. For now, you will need to sign in using your city, zipcode, and phone number. The only tricky part is when entering your phone number. Use the areacode and don't include any dashes. Much has changed and better instructions will come soon. Happy searching!

How To Library

Now available is the How To Library. Access it from the FCS MS/HS Library home page. Once on the home page you will see a link to the How To Library in the left sidebar. This library will contain documents to guide you through some common library activities. The file cabinet will be growing so keep an eye on it for documents that may help you.
