IT SUPPORT:

Families can request support from our Family Help Desk (Phone: 503.261.8391 e-Mail: family_help_desk@ddsd40.org) but in all actuality there is very little that the DDSD team can do to support weak/slow/spotty Wi-Fi in the home.  Our recommendation is to call your internet provider and ask for assistance.

Welcome back to school! I’m Jackie Partch, lead worker of the Multnomah County Library School Corps, a team of librarians from the Multnomah County Library who work in collaboration with Multnomah County K-12 schools, both public and private. 

We’ve recently adapted our services to support distance learning. Our librarians are able to 

  • Create lists of ebooks or websites 
  • Visit classes online to demonstrate how to download ebooks and audiobooks from Multnomah County Library, including books for kids and teens that are always available. (We can also show these at school staff meetings.)
  • Present our program about censorship and the freedom to read, Feasting on Forbidden Fruit, online for grades 5-12 (Banned Books week is Sept. 27-Oct. 3)
  • Demonstrate how to search the library’s databases for students

Don’t miss these other resources: 

  • Our quarterly newsletter, which shares information about events like author visits and book giveaways. Sign up now.
  • Novel-Ties videos: short video booktalks on captivating novels for grades 4-8
  • Videos on how to use Overdrive and Libby to download ebooks and audiobooks from the library.
