Because of the K-12 1:1 initiative, the Southern Lehigh school district librarians would like to remind you of a FREE and user friendly source for ebooks. Overdrive allows students to borrow ebooks and audiobooks, similar to borrowing materials in the school library, without the worry of due dates, fines and replacements costs. We encourage you to take advantage of this resource.
The Southern Lehigh School District has been designated a Project RED Signature District, AND an APPLE Distinguished Program for innovation, leadership and educational excellence!

Raising over $10,000 for our Pennies for Patients campaign this year was a huge feat! The students wanted to take our efforts a step further and give back directly to kids fighting cancer in our area. We decided to create 'Hero Bags' after getting donations from families and buisnesses in our area. The bags included items such as: coloring books, socks, hand sanitizer, crayons, tissues and books that children can use while they're going through treatment. These bags were put together by our stuents and even had help from some of the teachers. The afternoon was complete with an ice cream social and a special guest thanking us for our efforts after beating the fight herself. The students made inspirational cards and made more capes for our heors. The entire event was wrapped up when our Pennies for Patients officers were able to deliver the bags directly to Lehigh Valley Hospital.
