Literacy is very important at TMS, which is why we want to make it easier for you to learn about our books and how to access them and access our databases.
All of the 14,000 physical books housed in our library may be found in our online card catalog, Destiny. Students will access this catalog through CLEVER, so that they may create a list of favorite books they wish to read, leave reviews on books they have read, and place holds on books that they want to read next, but are currently checked out by others. Destiny also has short summaries of each book, to help students find their next great read!
Sora by Overdrive is our online ebook and audiobook catalog. Students will be able to read books in English or Spanish. We have graphic novels and manga, chapter books and poetry. The best part is that students who have parental permission can download the Sora app on to their cellphones or tablets, so they can read books wherever they are--little brother's doctor's visit, the barbershop, on a long car-ride, etc.

Students can access databases through their Clever accounts. They will select the Texquest icon, select Waco ISD, and enter the password your teacher will give you.
If you need assistance with research, you may come in during open hours--before school, lunch, or after school--or make an appointment by emailing Mrs. Cannon at Leslie.Cannon@wacoisd.org
