Project Gutenberg is an online library of free eBooks.
Project Gutenberg was the first provider of free electronic books, or eBooks. Michael Hart, founder of Project Gutenberg, invented eBooks in 1971 and his memory continues to inspire the creation of eBooks and related content today.
Students have access to the printers in the library for school assignments.
Students must share or email their document(s) to BOTH librarians simultaneously.
Students should share their document(s) BEFORE leaving the classroom. Documents can also be sent from off campus locations such as home.
To help expedite the printing process, students should get in the habit of sending their projects for printing from wherever they are when work is completed, but PRIOR to submitting to teachers through Google Classroom or Schoology at which time ownership is transferred from the student to the teacher. An alternative is to make a copy of your document prior to submitting work. Not only is this a good habit to form, but the copy can be sent for printing although work has already been submitted.
Students should bring Chromebooks when coming to pick up their print jobs in case failures occur or editing needs arise.
WEBSITES and PICTURES must be copied and pasted into a document before sending.
Documents can either be emailed or shared to:
To share through Google Drive, send to: email@example.com AND firstname.lastname@example.org
To send as an email attachment send to: email@example.com AND firstname.lastname@example.org
Students may check out up to three books. Our check out time is 14 school days. Charges for lost/damaged books are based on the cost of replacement.
