11th Grade Junior English Research Project: Finding a Book

JRP Ideas - Print Books in the Keefe Library

Search Our Catalog



Searching for a book in the Keefe Library (3 min. 45 sec.)

Checking for Literary Criticism (4 mins. 21 sec.) 

eBook Collections



Collections of ebooks to search. Keep in mind:

  • Each of these libraries has different titles;
  • Check each one for the book you want;
  • Some collections permit an unlimited number of users (Teen BookCloud, Hoopla, SORA) and others only allow one user per title (Libby/Overdrive);
  • Login is different for each collection because we get access from different places (BPL, BPS or Keefe Library).

Ask for help if you need it!
