🏖️ Summer reading, and summer not — but hopefully you are!
A reminder that all books were due back to the library May 30th (unless you’re in English 11 and have something for independent reading — we’ll need those back this week). However…if you are a freshman, sophomore or junior in good standing (meaning, no library overdues) and expect to be back at the Academy next year, you can take up to 5 books home for the summer — we’ll make them due back on September 15th! Stop by the library and browse our collection of over 20,000 titles — wow!
Of course, our digital library is open all year long, 24/7 — the Sora Digital Reading app includes thousands of eBooks and audiobooks from these libraries:
|Library||# eBooks||# Audiobooks|
|Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES||5,800+ (including comics and magazines)||800+|
|OWWL (Pioneer Library System)||21,000+||11,000+|
|Finger Lakes Library System||10,000+||6,000+|
|Southern Tier Library System||18,000+||5,000+|
