It Takes a Village...

Somers Library card and key chain
Through a wonderful and successful cooperation between the Somers High School and the Somers Library, we have opened or replaced over 200 library cards for 11th and 12th grade students!  Pamela Read, the high school librarian and teachers Christine Drysdale, Carol Lieto, and Michael Agostino were instrumental in making this wonderful idea into a reality. 

As we move further and further into the digital age, it is so important that students master the use of online databases and ebooks as this has become a necessary skill for high school and college learners of today.  A library card not only gives access to books, but patrons have access to many digital resources:
  • Digital databases such as online encyclopedias, online literature resources, online academic and general journal articles, online newspaper articles, and more.
  • Ebooks and downloadable audio books (Overdirve, Freeding, Totalboox, and OneClick)
  • Digital Downloadable music (Freegal) 
  •  Downloadable music and video (Hoopla)  
  • Downloadable comics (Comics Plus)
Visit our website at to access these collections.  

The Somers Library and Young Adult Librarian, Tara Ferretti, would like to thank the Somers High School for this productive collaboration!
