Books, Audiobooks, Magazines and Videos
Access to the OK Virtual Library is provided to Alex students by the Lindsay (Oklahoma) Community Library through a collaboration agreement known as the L&L (Leopards and Longhorns) Rural OK Literacy Initiative. The OK Virtual Library offers free of charge fiction and non-fiction ebooks and audiobooks, popular magazines and videos for use on mobile devices and computers.
A virtual library access number is required to sign into the library. Each Alex school student in grades 4 through 12 has been assigned a number that begins with an A and is followed by the last six digits of their student ID number. Example: A123456. No password is required to sign into the OK Virtual Library.
Library access numbers are kept on file at the school but students may use them at home or anywhere else. Students should write down their number or store it on their electronic device if they want to download library materials when away from school. Only digital materials are included in the collaboration agreement with the Lindsay Community Library. The assigned library access numbers DO NOT allow Alex students to check out physical materials from the library.
Once signed into the library go to My Account>>Settings to set preferences. Users may choose various options for lending periods, check-out of materials and library browsing.
After check-out, if the book or other library item is not finished before its expiration date it will be deleted from the device and will have to be checked out again to be completed.
The OK Virtual Library operates much like a physical library. If a desired book or other item is available, users may proceed with check-out. If the item is checked out by someone else, a Hold may be placed on the item. An email address is required to place an item on Hold. Alex students should use their school-issued email addresses to place books on Hold in the OK Virtual Library. Notification will be sent by email when the item is available for download.
