Do you want to make the most of your library card? Follow this series of articles that will provide an overview of  information on the various digital resources and databases the La Porte County Public Library offers the community. This is the second in a series and will review databases in the Library’s Scholastic subscription.

 

BookFlix

Scholastic BookFlix is an online literacy resource that pairs classic video storybooks from Weston Woods with related nonfiction eBooks from Scholastic to build a love of reading and learning. The engaging way to link fact and fiction, BookFlix reinforces early reading skills and introduces children to a world of knowledge and exploration.  The service is heavily promoted to schools in use with our Libraries 360 program.

40% of usage is performed remotely versus 60% performed onsite.

 

ScienceFlix

Emphasizing the latest STEM thinking and the Next Generation Science Standards, Scholastic’s ScienceFlix is transforming the way students access science topics, acquire scientific knowledge, and build an abiding interest in science, technology, and engineering.  The service is heavily promoted to schools in use with our Libraries 360 program.

33% of usage is performed remotely versus 67% performed onsite.

Michael joined the library staff in August of 2017. He is a member of the Library Admin Team. He has spent much of his adult work life swimming in seas of metadata, bench-pressing card catalogs, and bartering with information system vendors, but those activities have done more to tone his head muscle and less to develop those desirable six-pack abs. These cataloging skills have taken him through Illinois, Wisconsin, and back home to Indiana (queue the Soggy Bottom Boys: “the place where he was born and bred”). In his spare time, he attempts to stay out of family arguments, binge watches British comedy, drama, and mystery programs, and subjects his two cats to the latest in Indie/Alternative music.
