Library Search Catalog Online
Click on the Yellow Box below to find items in the library.
Check your library account, Create a book bag, or Browse the databases for homework help or Print. Come by and ask the Librarian to set up your own PIN # in order to use extra features. You need both Library Number and Pin Number to log in and these will be the two you use for OverDrive/Oklahoma Virtual Library discussed below.
OVERDRIVE IS HERE! Ebooks, and Ray Robert's favorite, the audio books! In his memory, we present OverDrive!
3 Things are all you need to enjoy them.
1. Our library website Http://www.owl.okpls.org
2. A Library account (ask, it's free!)
3. A Pin Number, the last four digits of your phone number, usually.
With OverDrive, Your local book repository will now also be a repository of digital files. Files that are books that you can read or listen to on your computer, Kindle, Nook, ereaders, tablets, or smart phone. A book in your phone? Yes, or an audio (read-to-you) book, or a movie or even music!
And it all checks out like a book. You borrow the items through Oklahoma Virtual Library, The Consortia group, which we have joined in order to offer you lots of interesting choices of books. Shifting gears now, the Jetsons want their books to go!
Also try the filtered access with appropriate age level choices in the kids Ereading room:
And this one for your teen Ereaders:
Please note that your choice of "kids or teens room" will cache as a default choice in your computer and you will need to click on the main collection in upper left of your page in order to make other choices again.
http://help.overdrive.com/ has "how to use" videos.
any questions, problems, contact your librarian.
OUR FLU POLICY: If you are too sick for work or school, you are too sick to be in the library. :(
If you or your child appears to be coughing a lot, or is feverish, they may be sent home from the library.
If you need books to read, call ahead and we will hand you some books at your car window, or at our front door. Some free books are going into our entry way today that may be picked up by your friends or family, if you need to send someone by when we are closed.
While you are sick, you can still call during library hours and get your PIN NUMBER set up which will pair with your LIBRARY NUMBER and you will then be able to borrow ebooks, audiobooks, movies and music over the internet for your tablets, laptops, and smartphones. Time to try it out!
Have you been to see "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand about War Hero and Olympian, Louis Zamperini?
The Children's Version in Grade 5
On a May afternoon in 1943, an American military plane crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane's bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard. So began one of the most extraordinary sagas of the Second World War.
The lieutenant's name was Louis Zamperini. As a boy, he had been a clever delinquent, breaking into houses, brawling, and stealing. As a teenager, he had channeled his defiance into running, discovering a supreme talent that carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when war came, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to his doomed flight, a tiny raft, and a drift into the unknown.
Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, a sinking raft, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would respond to desperation with ingenuity, suffering with hope and humor, brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would hang on the fraying wire of his will.
