Library Databases

Our library houses approximately 10,000 books, eBooks, videos, and magazines to support our curriculum and students’ reading needs.

Along with our print materials, we subscribe to multiple databases and eBook reference collections to ensure that our students have access to information online that directly supports our school’s curriculum.

The Digital Maine Library collection of databases, offered through the state of Maine, is free to all Maine residents and offers users from pre-school through college, high-quality information. We suggest that all families take a few minutes to preview this outstanding collection of information resources.

Ready to use the Internet to locate information? Consider using one of these databases or websites first.  Passwords to some of the databases are shared on the “Usernames, Passwords and Links for Online Resources” available in the Library’s Google Classroom.
