Reading Information and Book Reports

New E-Books Program

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Mount Nebo Junior High in conjunction with Nebo School District is committed to bringing unique learning opportunities to our students and we are pleased to introduce a new, free reading service providing digital books through OverDrive (nebo.lib.overdrive.com).

Why OverDrive?
The OverDrive collection is an extension of our physical library, only it’s online with 24/7 access to eBooks. It’s convenient for students to check out titles at home, on the weekends or during school breaks with no worry about misplacing a book or running up late fees – these digital titles automatically return at the end of the lending period!

OverDrive can help students of all ages read more and improve comprehension.  Struggling or reluctant readers, learning-challenged, second language learners, and gifted readers can all benefit from this service.

●     Enrich vocabulary and improve comprehension and pronunciation

●     Introduce students to books above their reading level

●     Teach critical listening

●     Help busy kids find time to read

How does it work?
To use OverDrive, students browse our secure custom website, borrow books with their student computer login information, and enjoy anytime, anywhere on a computer, tablet, smartphone or eReader.

Whether a student’s interest lies in study guides, classics for required reading, or the latest popular juvenile or young adult fiction, they can find it all in the digital collection through OverDrive at nebo.lib.overdrive.com.

Where can I find more information? Feel free to contact the librarian any time.

Sincerely,

Linda Durrant

Library Media Teacher

Book Reports for AP Flex and English

All book reports should reflect a student's best effort. Credit will not be given for incomplete forms, unreadable forms, wrong form for the term, etc. In keeping with our school improvement goals, we would like to get 80% of our students to increase their reading level by one full grade level by the end of the school year.
