Makerspace Time!

Leander ISD Libraries are able to provide several Makerspace stations. These stations offer students opportunities to build, create, and think. This is a space where "failing forward" is encouraged.  Be sure to ask the librarian on duty for more information.

The importance of summer reading

Have you every wondered why teachers & librarians stress the importance of summer reading?  Here are some links that explain why.


Overdrive Virtual Library

Students & teachers may download an e-book to their personal device or home computer by logging in with school login.  Librarians will be at summer library sites to provide assistance if you need additional support.

U:  Last Name (1st 8 digits only)_ID # 

P: Students use the same password you use to log-in to the school computers 

This is done with no spaces.

*Secondary students change their password at the beginning of the year and it's the same password as their Google accounts and computer logins.*

*You may download the free Overdrive App if  you'd like to read on a  device.*
