Welcome to the Library Home Page at South Middle School. Our SMS Media Center is open from 7:15 am - 3:45 pm each day. Students may come visit for quiet reading, AR testing, or checking out books during this time. Everyone is welcome! I encourage you to come checkout and enjoy a good read. Please see Mrs. Buley-Coomes for any assistance you may need.
We are offering curb-side pickup for checking out books. Please see process on Mrs. BuleyCoomes google classroom.
South Middle currently subscribes to Renaissance Place, therefore we have access to every AR test available, now numbering over 120,000. This ensures that our students have the opportunity to read a large variety of books and still reach their individualized AR goals. Students have an individualized goal to meet each grading period. To find out if a particular book title from home has a quiz, search here: http://www.arbookfind.com
Also, be sure to check your child's progress in AR frequently at
Students also have access to an online website with thousands of ebooks called Big Universe. Each child has an individual login that they can access 24 hours a day to read from their Chromebooks. (must have internet access). www.biguniverse.com
If you need access to the books we have available in our library, go to www.destiny.henderson.kyschools.us and click on South Middle School. This will allow you to search our catalog. Students can log in to place holds.
