New in the library!

Our Little Free Library is open!

We have a new way for students to choose books! Our Little Free Library has been installed and is now ready for use. It is located in front of Fisher Jr/Sr High School by the sidewalk. It was designed and built by students from Mr. Chittick’s classes.

Little Free Libraries work on the Take a Book-Share a Book method. Anyone may take a book from a Little Free Library. When you take a book, we ask that you return it when you are done or donate another book in its place. If you don’t have a book to donate, take one anyway! If you want to keep it, that’s fine.

The library’s books are appropriate for kindergarteners to seniors in high school. We request that people don’t put books for adults in this particular Little Free Library. The website https://littlefreelibrary.org/ has a map with locations of libraries near us and all over the world. Please go looking for other libraries to find more books!

Check out the Ebook app

Fisher Jr/Sr High School students and the Fisher staff can borrow Ebooks through the Illinois Heartland Library System consortium and the Cloud Library App. Look under Useful Links to get started. You will need your library card number and you will need your Share website password which was set up previously. Late books and fines will block the app from working. If you have any problems with using ebooks or any questions, please see Mrs. Friedlein for help.

Polaris and the Share website

You can access your portion of the Share website at fise.illshareit.com. (Look under Useful Links.) Check on due dates, fines, your reading record and place and watch the status of holds!

Finding free e-books

You can find and read books for free on the Internet. Most will be classics, out of copyright books, or books whose authors have agreed to let them be available to the public. Try one of the following sites if you need to read something different to read. Also, look for authors, such as Cory Doctorow, who believe in the freedom of information and put their books on the Internet for free reading. And you can read the websites of your favorite authors to see what they are currently working on.
