Hey Beekman Readers and their Families!
Use the links on the left to access our catalog, databases, and other library resources. You can also view additional information by exploring the Virtual Library above.
Curbside Pick-Up for Remote Families:
Remote students may pick up books curbside M-Th from 9-1. When you arrive at the school, dial 845-227-1834 x12309. If you need to make alternate arrangements (book delivery or pick up with other remote materials), please email your librarian, Ms. Luongo, at firstname.lastname@example.orgHybrid students will have books delivered directly to classrooms on the days they are at school.
E-Books are also a terrific way to keep on reading while you are at home. Our library uses a program called Sora. You borrow e-books from Sora in the same way that you borrow print books from libraries. You can also link your public library card to your Sora account for access to even more books. Keep in mind we share our Sora books with kids throughout the district, so you may have to wait for a book to become available.
To get started with Sora, visit https://soraapp.com/welcome, or find it in the waffle-app section (top right) of your google drive.
Be sure to explore our Databases on the left for award-winning eBooks and great distance learning activities.
Database passwords have been shared with teachers and students via their Library Google Classroom pages.
Please email for assistance.
