Don’t forget to keep your brain in shape this summer! The North Syracuse Central School District is providing a variety of resources to keep our students reading this summer. Students, teachers, parents and community members are encouraged to participate in summer reading events. We hope that everyone will be able to enjoy a summer reading escape at home or on vacation!
July 5, 2016: Students in the North Syracuse Central School District are among 60,000 plus across Central New York with access to thousands of free e-books this summer.
Thanks to the OCM BOCES School Library System, which is participating in the myOn digital library, students can access thousands of books that can be read on computers, laptops and other devices. Since May, students from OCM BOCES 23 component school districts have already finished nearly 20,000 books.
OCM BOCES School Library System Coordinator Doreen Bergman is excited to bring the program to Central New York students. “The program allows students to choose books at their reading level and within their areas of interest to keep them reading all summer,” Bergman said. “This is a great program, and we’ve already seen exceptional participation.”
Students in all 23 of OCM BOCES component school districts can access the myOn e-books collection by going to www.myON.com and logging in. Students will need to enter their school name, district identification (as their username) and the password “books” in order to access the database free of charge through OCM BOCES.
Students that read and log at least 10 books through the myOn program by September 2, 2016 will be entered into a random drawing for an iPad Mini. Additionally, there are prizes for the top readers in elementary, middle and high school.
