Troubleshooting tips for MackinVia: If you choose Utica Elementary as the school and then it just goes to a blank screen, you may have a pop-up blocker causing the trouble. If you are unable to disable the pop-up blocker, then leave the school field blank and log in with utica as the username and jets as the password. This will give you access to the e-books, even though you won’t be able to check them out for offline access.

Nonfiction interactive ebooks:

TrueFlix books are on a 4th grade reading level. Go to http://tfx.grolier.com, username uticaschool and password remote.

FreedomFlix are on a 5th-7th grade reading level. Go to  http://freedomflix.scholastic.com and enter username uticaschool and password remote.

The library could use some volunteers!

If you have half a day every week or every other week, we would like to plug you in! Please contact Mrs. Karnes at kkarnes@gccschools.com. Volunteers shelve books and help students check out books, along with helping with various other projects. Come be a part of the library community!
