As we're all at home using distance learning, be aware that computers can access downloadable books through the County Library. You can read them on your computer or tablet, or even download an audiobook and listen to it read by a professional voice actor. Links to libraries are here on this web page to the right, and chromebooks also have a list of library resources under the pvuesd.org bookmarks link on the bookmarks bar in the upper left of your chrome browser or while logged into your Google account under your student username and password. Libby and Hoopla use your Nevada County Library card, so if you don't have one, please contact the library for assistance. We also have discovered Epic books free children's library. Contact your teacher for assistance.
