NCS LIBRARY CATALOG

The Northside Christian School library catalogs are available to you at home. You can find library research resources, see the covers of books and read reviews, check for AR points and levels, and even read parts of the book directly from your computer!

The NCS libraries now offers e-books!

For over a year the Northside Christian School has offered e-books. Before now these books were either reference books accessed by a personal computer or books loaded on the school’s six Kindle readers. Now we are offering e-books for your own e-reader.

Ebook checkout Image Circulating e-books can be obtained from the library and will then load onto the student’s own iPad, iPod, Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD, or any Android tablet using the free BLIO reader app. The student will need to log in to the Axis 360 Magic Wall using their Info Direct user name and original password. If necessary, this password can be changed for the library by contacting Mrs. Baker. They choose their book and check it out. Then the student will set up a BLIO account using name, email address (this can be fictional) and password. Once BLIO is established on the device, they will not need to log in again. Axis 360 will load the borrowed book onto that device. Axis 360 also makes their books available for the Nook or other Kindle models using the ePub program and PDF files.
