Non-fiction eBooks Have Virtually Arrived!

Non-fiction eBooks
Thanks to two grants, one from the Long Island School Media Association (LISMA) and one from the Bellmore-Merrick CHSD, we were able to purchase the following Gale non-fiction eBooks to support the Common Core. These eBooks can be accessed here: http://infotrac.galegroup.com/itweb/bell89784?db=GVRL. See Ms. Stack in the library for the password. You can also access them by going to the Mepham High School Website, clicking Library and then e-Books (non-fiction). Faculty and students have unlimited, simultaneous, no-checkout use of these eReference materials here at school and at home.
