Thanks to the Hometown High Q team’s amazing performance last year, the TCS Library has been able to purchase a new e-book collection. Trinity’s High Q team last year — Alex Murph, Jack Worsham, and Evan Thomas — earned a grant for Trinity’s library by getting so far in the tournament. The generous grant, underwritten by Westfield Insurance, enabled the library to purchase fifty e-books on a variety of non-fiction subjects for middle school and high school, such as Literature criticism, Biographies, History, Contemporary Issues, and World Geography.
The electronic books are cataloged on Library World just like a regular book. The difference is, rather than going to the shelf to find the book, you just click on the screen words Electronic Access. If a login screen appears, use your TCS library card number, and then the “book” will appear on your computer (or laptop, or tablet, or smartphone.)
For home access, the e-books can also be downloaded in both EPub and PDF formats, which accommodates most e-book readers. Log in with your TCS library card number and instructions will be sent to your email address for downloading the book to your device or your computer.
