Kindle_DXThe library has recently acquired 20 Kindle DXs for student and teacher use.

For those of you who do not know what a Kindle is, please allow us to explain. Kindle is a piece of technology developed by that allows users to download and read books on a slim, portable, and lightweight computerized tablet. The Kindle DX features storage for up to 3500 books, wireless access, a large screen and the ability for the book to be read out loud to you.

Currently, we have a handful of books on the Kindles, but with a $14k budget, we will soon be expanding the collection!

If you are interested in checking one out, please see Mrs. Harland, Mr. Schrier or Mr. Brough. Checkouts are for 3 weeks with the condition that if we need them back for a class, you will have to return them. Also, please keep in mind that these are expensive pieces of technology (about $500/each) so you will be responsible for them.
