Did you know that there were nearly 2,000 books checked out of the Thompson eLibrary from June to September 2013? The Thompson eLibrary has been up and running for almost 6 months and it’s time to get your best thinking of the books we need to add to our library.

Fiction? Non-Fiction? Audio Books? Professional Books?
Thompson subscribes to its virtual library services via a company called OverDrive. OverDrive has long been a source of digital material for public libraries to loan to their patrons, but now these same services are offered to school libraries as well.
Through the Overdrive service, we can add just about any book you can think of to our eLibrary. Each year, we will take your suggestions and do our best to add selections that you request.

If you are interested in learning how to check out an eBook from the Thompson eLibrary – just go into your school’s library and talk to your school librarian. She can help you get the information you need to start reading!
A strong digital library makes good economic sense.
Digital e-books can be accessed by any child, enrolled at any school. With our ability to monitor our student book checkouts across the system, we will be able to adjust our expenditures to maximize financial stewardship as well as respond to the learning needs of our students.
The implementation has been paid for through the district’s general library funds. Thompson’s Curriculum & Instruction’s Media Services department will continue to support both print and digital books in all our libraries.
