During distance learning: catalog and databases are available 24/7. Ms. Hart is available by email/appointment.
Hi everyone! My name is Ms. Hart, and it is my 6th year at Marylin. If you have questions or need help with placing holds or getting started with research for an assignment (I'm looking at you, 4th and 5th grade!), email me! There are links to the side to the catalog, instructions on the "Distance Learning" page about curbside pickup, and links below to some of our databases. Be sure you read the instructions for the databases, since some require you to login if you're not at school.
All instructional videos and recommended lists will be visible to everyone; everything else will require students to be logged in to their school email accounts for access.
Our fall book fair is almost here! It will run October 28 - November 13. Check out the site now - you can order once the fair officially opens on the 28th.
