The Silver Spring Library is looking for dedicated Blazers to help younger students grades K to 8. Volunteers are needed Thursdays from 6 to 8 pm. Volunteers will receive SSL hours. Here is the link to the Montgomery County General Volunteer Registration Form. Please make sure your parents sign this form.
For more information, see Ms. Lamphier in the Media Center or email Ms. Lauren Martino at the Silver Spring Library. Her email address is: Lauren.Martino@montgomerycountymd.gov.
Book, magazine, and (most eBooks & audiobooks) can be checked out for three weeks. Overdue notices are sent to the first-period teacher and obligations are entered each quarter. Please ask your child if they have any overdue materials!
Many of our core English books are now available in eBook or audio format. Your child should stop into the Media Center to find out what titles are available. One great resource available from home or school is TeenBookCloud. Many core English titles are available here. See the media specialist for more help with TeenBook Cloud.
Audiobooks are available as CDs, digital downloads, and loans from Overdrive and Mackvia. We have some Loaner Kindles available - Thanks, One Blair PTSA). If students will need to borrow a media center Kindle, their parent or guardian must first sign a form accepting financial responsibility.
We also have many titles on PlayAway (books are preloaded as single-title audiobook onto dedicated loaner mp3 devices).
