Ms. Danielle Lewis, our school librarian, is delighted to announce that the Joseph Alexander Library now makes available to our students and faculty eBooks and audiobooks! Students, faculty and staff can now browse the electronic collection in a variety of subjects including classic fiction, current fiction, and popular nonfiction through this online extension of our physical library. By supporting the school curriculum while helping busy students find time to read, our Overdrive ebook platform provides access to timeless concepts with the latest 21st century tools.

The debut of our ebook library dovetails with the second annual National Digital Learning Day, which took place on Wednesday, February 6. This event celebrates “innovative teaching practices that encourage exploration of digital learning, emphasizing how it can provide students with crucial skill sets and increased opportunities” through successful use of technology in and beyond the classroom. National Digital Learning Day is presented by the Alliance for Excellent Education and other national educational organizations.

The MTA community can access our online OverDrive catalog by clicking on the ebooks icon on the bottom of the Library page of the MTA website. Students have already been provided with usernames and passwords, and they may now check out books in a variety of formats, including Kindle, EPUB, and Kobo.

For more information, please contact Ms. Lewis, Librarian and Learning Center Specialist, at (212) 960-5337, ext. 349 or at dlewis@yuhsb.org. We look forward to sharing this exciting new resource with our students.
