My name is Mrs. Schiano and I'm happy to be your new librarian at PTHS. I'm so glad that the LMC is an updated space, because I had little time to set up before school started. One project we're just about finished completing is weeding the print collection and then reorganizing the nonfiction books by categories, which make better sense to students in the 21st Century.
Stay tuned for what's happening at your library!
Sync is an awesome summer audiobook program, which offers FREE teen audiobook downloads. Once a title is downloaded, it's yours forever, however, titles are ONLY available to download for free during the week when they being are offered. This weeks titles are Feed by MT Anderson, (a personal favorite, which I think is actually better listened to than read), and Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams. In addition, to downloading the books themselves, you'll need to to download the Overdrive App, which you'll use to listen to the books you've downloaded. Books can be listend to via smartphone or laptop. Complete directions are clear on the website. See the complete 2017 SYNC Titles , offered through August 16.
Unsure if youy're interested in a title, download it anyway, there's no risk! If you've never listened to audiobooks before, I recommend tryng it out. I had trouble concentrating at first, but now, I listen to books all the time, esecially while driving. I also love listening, while walking, working outside, organizing and cleaning. Enjoy!
