Eastern Slope makes donation

Eastern Slope Donates to Digital Library

There will be many exciting changes in the Genoa-Hugo School Library this fall.  Under the direction of Lora White, the library has been completely reorganized by genre. The hope is that both students and teachers will be able to find exactly what they are looking for, especially when the librarian is not available.

Genoa-Hugo School accepted a digital literacy donation from Eastern Slope. These funds were offered to each school and public library in the Eastern Slope service area. Genoa-Hugo School has earmarked this donation to help fund its membership into the AspenCat Union Catalog through the Colorado Library Consortium. Students and staff will have access to over 1 million books from 98 different libraries! Joining AspenCat will allow students to use their tablets to find reliable research materials that can be sent directly to the school library, and will give unlimited personal support to the librarian. Using AspenCat and an internet connection, each student will also have access to a large selection of audio books and ebooks.  It will be a fun year as the staff and students explore these new resources!

Frank Reeves, Genoa-Hugo School Superintendent, accepts a digital literacy donation of $1500 from Pat White, General Manager of Eastern Slope. Librarians Shirley Coleman (L) and Lora White (R) are excited for the staff and students to begin using the additional resources made available through this funding.
