Library Resources for Parents

Online Portal:

Access ALL Digital Resources Here

Did you know your teen has access to premium digital resources to help them succeed in school? The Mesquite ISD Libraries provide access to many different sites and tools through the online portal. Take some time to look through these resources with your children. Your teen can log on to the portal with their school username & password.

Check out the recommended digital resources for each grade level in the "Learning in the Library" section.
