• Welcome to the MSS Library Webpage

     

    Welcome to the MSS Virtual Library. I'm Ms. Pulley, the teacher librarian at Main Street School. This webpage supports the needs of students, faculty members, and parents by providing a variety of digital resources.  

     

    The valuable links below will assist in the search for personal reading choices and credible research resources. Sora provdes free and equitable access to thousands of Ebooks and audiobooks without the need of a library card or passwords. The research databases include a digital version of the World Book Encyclopedia. Knowing when and how to use these resources is an integral part of the MSS library curriculum.
