A NOTE TO USERS OF EBOOKS AND EAUDIOBOOKS

In the next few months, Scott County Library will transition to Libby as your one-stop shop for eBooks, eAudiobooks, and eMagazines. There will be a period of migration as we work to move our collections to Overdrive's Libby app.

The first stage begins on 12/15 and only affects RBdigital users. That's not many of you, but just an FYI to those of you who have checked out an RBdigital eAudiobook before December 14th: you will have access to the eaudiobook but will be unable to renew it. RBdigital eMagazines will remain available through January.

Stay tuned for more changes coming soon that will affect the many more of you who use CloudLibrary for ebooks and eaudiobooks.

Booklist of the Month: Early Chapter Books

Upper Elementary
Resource of the Month:
NoveList K-8
Looking for your next book to read? The NoveList K-8 resource can help you find the right book. Search by reading level, subject, title, author, read-alike, or award winners. Information on each book includes reviews and Lexile levels.
Booklist of the Month: Anti-Racist Fiction
Often we read more to understand more, and great fiction, even though it's based more on stories and less on factual information, can help us empathize and relate to people who have faced discrimination and racism.
Secondary (7th-12th)
