Students attending Bayard Public Schools now have access to a rich collection of electronic books as a result of the school district receiving a Dollar General Literacy Foundation grant.
The grant provides the opportunity for the school district to purchase membership in the digital school library association administered by Educational Service Unit 2 in Fremont, Nebraska in partnership with Educational Service Unit 13 in Scottsbluff. Students can check books out from this electronic library on devices such as a iPad, Kindle Fire, computer, or smart phone.
Additionally, the same grant has allowed the school to purchase several Kindle PaperWhite devices which can be used to read a wide variety of books provided through the school library. Students can check out one of these electronic book readers if they have the proper parental permission forms signed and on file in the school library.
