Book Recommendations are Back and Better Than Ever!
We have been learning from home for over a month now and new resources become available every day. I want to point out three places Barrington Middle School students can go to access FREE digital offerings. When recommending titles I will let you know where you can find titles within these three platforms.
This is our school library catalog with eBooks and digital audiobooks. A TON of new titles were just added to our catalog courtesy of RILINK. Email Mrs. Roy for your login info if you cannot remember.
You can access, borrow, and place holds in this public library catalog. If you do not have a public library card you can apply for one online here.
This brand new AMAZING offering through the Barrington Public Library provides online and mobile access to ebooks, audiobooks, comics, music, movies, and TV series with your public library card. If you do not have a public library card you can apply for one online here.
From the Barrington Public Library site:
Here's how it works: visit hoopladigital.com. Select "Get started today" to create a new account with your email address. Search for Barrington Public Library. Select "Barrington Public Library (RI)" and then next. Type in your Ocean State Libraries card number. Then, select "sign me up." You now have access to hoopla! If you don't have a library card, there will be a link displayed to "obtain a library card online." hoopla is a digital platform offered to Barrington Public Library card holders only.
You can borrow up to 4 titles per month. Borrows reset on the first of the month. Each title has a different lending period, which will be displayed upon borrowing and in your "Currently Borrowed" page. Books are available for 21 days, videos are available for 72 hours, and music titles are available for 7 days after you borrow.
