The high school’s library will be expanding the use of eBooks next year.

“I have already ordered lots of new eBooks for next year,” head librarian Jane Behrens said, “and will continue to do so with every book order, which is about every four to six weeks throughout the year.”

When it was first launched earlier this year, the eBook library only housed a few popular novels such as the Twilight series and similar hits, but the collection is set to grow rapidly.

“[The selection] was pretty small at first,” Behrens said. “But the funding we received earlier (in the year) will help us expand for next year.”

The digitized library is poised to give you a large selection of books than ever before¬†all at student’s fingertips. The app will be free starting next year.

With the year coming to a close, it is important for students to remember to dig through their closets for the books they checked out in September, as the due date for them is May 15.
