Thanks for Coming to Books for Break!

Books for Break was a success! From Dec 12th-16th 195 free books were given away, 387 books were checked-out, and 24 classes visited along with many other individual drop-in visitors.

A big thank you to Rachael from the Oak Park Public Library for donating the free books to give away to students.

We will definitely do this again! Have a lovely winter break, Huskies!

Ebooks and Audiobooks on Your Chromebook!

Everyone with a chromebook at OPRFHS has the OverDrive app!  It's a quick easy way to download ebooks and audiobooks right onto your device.  You can also get the app on your phone, and it will synch with your chromebook!  You can also add Oak Park Public Library and River Forest Public Library to the app so you can borrow from both the high school and public library.

Here is a video to help.  There are some extra steps with first-time use.  See Ms. Hooper in the library with any questions.
