Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So... get on your way!”

Summer Reading

In all of your rest and relaxation, don't forget about Summer Reading assignments for students who plan to take Honors English in the coming school year (Fall or Spring semester)! Did you know that the ALBHS Media Center is your ticket to unlocking many of your summer reading titles on the go...right from your phone? It's true!

Most of the titles are available in our Overdrive app / online reading. (However, My Forbidden Face, Persepolis, and Zinky Boys are not sold as ebooks through this service.)  

All of the rest, however, are available 24/7 all summer long either in print or audio-book format in Overdrive.  The books are checked out for a week at a time and return themselves to the digital collection at the end of the week.  You can use your standard ALB login to access the collection.

Step by step instructions for Overdrive are:
