OverDrive Digital Library now available!
The next time your child won’t get off his phone, he might just be reading a book from our new OverDrive Digital Library. Thanks to your support of our winter book fairs and a generous grant from the PTA, we have just launched a start-up collection of popular fiction and nonfiction ebooks using the OverDrive platform. Students are learning how to use the website and app during their library visits over the next few weeks. Please visit the Salem Middle School home page if you want to learn more about this exciting new initiative.
