Check out eBooks!

You can now check out books from our new eBook library! Right now we have around 50 titles in our digital library, but will be adding more throughout the summer. Six of the nine summer reading books are available for eBook check out: Breathersthe Maltese FalconThe Heart is a Lonely HunterThe Immortal Life of Henrietta LacksLost in Shangri-la, and Swamplandia. These books can be read using the Blio reader, which is available for your iPad, smartphone, or PC. There are a few steps to get set up and you can find the directions here on the UHS library portal page (this will require you to login to our site).

On our eBook library site, you can browse all titles on the “Magic Wall,” browse by subject, or search for specific titles. On the page for each book you will find summaries, excerpts, reviews, and recommendations for similar books. You can even write your own reviews! You can have two books checked out at the same time with a two week check-out limit. If you don’t need a book for that long you can adjust the check out period by adding a book to your checkout list and using the slider to choose the appropriate number of days for check out.


About nmhunter

I'm a high school librarian. I love it when I find that essential source that didn't seem like it existed.
