Books & Summer Reading

Remote Learning Support due to COVID-19
In addition to your son's other teachers, all librarians are available to answer your questions about apps, resources, troubleshooting technology issues, finding e-books and audiobooks and any other questions you may have. Please see below for relevant links, and/or e-mail the library.

E-books & Audiobooks
Your son has access to our Sora e-book and audiobook collections through the Massachusetts Library System's Commonwealth eBook Collection. To add the Sora app to your son's device you must use his @fessenden email login credentials. Most students in Grades 5-9 have familiarity with this app. Please e-mail the library with any questions.
There are many other options for you to access online text and audio, including your local public library (in the US.) We are compiling some lists to be added here in the next few days. In the meantime, feel free to e-mail the library with questions.

Online Resources Check out this page for links to databases and vetted web sites.

Summer Reading
Fessenden's 2019 Summer Reading Lists are a good place to find suggestions for your child's reading.
The lists are interactive, allowing you to order books directly from Amazon. Fessenden's librarians update the lists each year.
Stay tuned for the Summer 2020 list!

We welcome your comments or suggestions. To offer your thoughts, please e-mail the library
