Under construction …

The library catalog is switching to a new & improved website for next year — the current catalog will not be available after June 25.

Info on how to find and login to the new library catalog will be included in the back-to-school newsletter sent from MEI Secondary Library. Keep an eye on @meilibrary on social media this summer!

school’s out for the summer …

… and if you left without a stack of stories for Summer Reading, MEI Secondary Library has a collection of eBooks and audiobooks available for you to check out!

LEARN MORE HERE!

Visit the app store on your device and download the free SORA app to search, read, or listen to MEI Secondary Library eBooks & audiobooks. Or if you don’t want to use the app, browse the SORA website to check out an eBook or audiobook.

You can borrow up to 4 eBooks or audiobooks at a time. Is the eBook or audiobook you want to try already checked out? Save your spot for a turn by putting it on hold! You can place up to 10 items on hold.

You have 3 weeks to enjoy the eBooks & audiobooks you check out, and SORA automatically returns them when they are due — no late fines! If you are finished reading the book before it is due, you can always remove it from your account so that the next person has a turn, and so that you are free to check out more eBooks & audiobooks!

Return Day

Tomorrow, June 15 is RETURN DAY!

If you need a reminder of what TEXTBOOKS or LIBRARY BOOKS you currently have checked out, login to your library account at bit.ly/meilibrary.

You will be called to the library with your last class of the day tomorrow, to return everything all at once.

Book your summer

Once you say YES to Summer Reading, any library books you borrow in the month of June will be all yours over the Summer Holiday, and there is no limit on what you can check out!

If you don’t want to login to your library account to place holds, or are not sure what you want to read next and like surprises, request a BOOK BUNDLE to enjoy over the Summer Holiday.

Simply answer a couple of questions HERE and let the Librarian surprise you with a stack of stories! You will be sent a Schoology message when your Book Bundle is ready to pick-up at the Grab + Go library table in the front entrance of the school.

And if you’ve requested a Book Bundle before, you can again! There’s no limit.

Want your yearbook?

Avoid stress and guarantee you’ll receive your YEARBOOK on the last day of classes. BY JUNE 9 make sure you take care of any outstanding issues — pay all School Cash Online fees, return all 1-3 quarter textbooks, pay library fines, etc. Ms. Penner has waived all late fines, extending a little kindness in these unusual COVID days. Only replacement or damage fees remain, and need to be paid for by June 9.

JUST A WORD OF CAUTION: If there are still outstanding issues on your account, you will not receive your yearbook when everyone else does.

**A quick how-to for paying library fines, including a reminder to email Ms.Penner the School Cash Online receipt so she can update your library account >> https://thebeak.edublogs.org/about/pay-library-fines-online/

Note: if you returned your Q1-3 textbooks last week, don’t worry if they still show on your library account as they may not have been checked in yet
