As we look at the changing digital landscape and the increasing need for e-learning opportunities, Ms. Mueller and I went looking for resources to expand our e-reading options.
It’s no secret that we offer e-reading with our AXIS360: Ebooks and Audiobooks service. However, did you know that e-content also includes magazines and newspapers? Now, through June 30, we are participating in an RBdigital trial to determine interest in purchasing these products for next year.
Ten reasons why you should check out our digital media library Axis 360. Let's start with #10.

If there is one constant between the ACHS English Department and the Information and Learning Center, it is to bring their love of books and reading to students, staff, and community members. Four years ago, we met and discussed various reading initiatives. As a result of our collaboration, the Sequoit Book Exchange was born.
Summer is one of our favorite times of the year. Not only do we get to spend more time reading, students and staff members are asking us for reading recommendations. Whether you are looking for a reading contest or a book list, we have compiled some suggestions that can be used for a variety of readers.
Are you an aspiring writer? If so, challenge yourself by participating in the National Novel Writing Month's program. NaNoWriMo values "enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel." Starting November 1, participants have one month to write a 50,000 word novel.
Pageapalooza is underway at Lakes, and the ACHS challenge begins on October 2. Both students and staff are welcome to participate in the reading contest. The goal: To read as many pages as you can for the fun of it, either with the support of a team or as an individual, over the course of four weeks.
