Announcement from EBSCO...
New teen health content added with more coming soon
To meet the information needs of parents and teens, Consumer Health Complete has added nearly 100 new proprietary articles containing reliable information on the topics teens and their parents care about.
Written by subject-matter experts, the “TeenTalk” articles help young people better understand the health- and safety-related issues facing them, while the “How to Talk with Teens About…” articles guide their parents in starting important conversations. The content can also support middle school and high school health curricula.
Visit EBSCO Help for FAQs, a user guide and tutorial on Consumer Health Complete.

If there are no Library computers available,
use a Chromebook for a Mod!
check out a Chromebook,
for use in the library, during the mod.
The Chromebook will be checked out to you,
at the Circulation Desk, and
must be returned to a librarian
to be checked back in,
before the end of the Mod.

This year at Central we were able to upgrade our Literary Reference Center to the Plus version. Literary Reference Center Plus™ Plus is described by Ebsco as a full-text database providing a broad spectrum of research information on thousands of authors and their works across literary disciplines and timeframes. Literary Reference Center Plus contains the following content and more:
Last year, the Grace Metalious Chapter of the National English Honor Society at Central High School presented a check for $352.00 to the McIninch Library Media Center. This Fall, the Library has spent that money to purchase books on Central’s summer reading list from the English Department.
The McIninch Library Media Center again thanks the National English Honor Society for its efforts and kind donation. These new books (shown below) add to the library's collection and supplements Central’s English curriculum summer reading material for all academic levels: Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and Level 4 and AP classes.
Special thanks go out to Nathan D. Robbins, Community Business Development Manager at Barnes & Noble Manchester on South Willow Street. He went above and beyond helping us to place the order and then he even hand delivered our book order to the Library. Thanks again, Nathan and Barnes & Noble!
