Volunteers Needed

We Need YOU!

Although we have hired our first round
of volunteers, we are still accepting
applications, as we will continue
to hire volunteers throughout the year..

So, if you can commit to at least
2 days before or after school
(or during Home Base) each week,
please stop by the Discovery Den
and fill out an application.

Thanks for volunteering!


Accessing Audiobooks and eBooks

We now have the most popular audiobooks and eBooks available via Follett. From any electronic device, go to Horizon's Discovery Den (this page) and click on "Horizon Online Catalog" link (above) and "login" with your regular Username and Password.

Then, select, "Audiobook" or "Electronic Book (eBook)" from the "Material Type" drop-down menu and either 1) leave the search box blank and click "Keyword" to see the complete online collection; or 2) do a specific search by keyword, title, author, etc. You can also click on, "Destiny Quest" and "Destiny Discover" (left-hand column) for quick access to all print and online resources!

Students also have access to free online resources via OverDrive through the Bismarck Public Library.

Please visit with Ms. Berg, your library media specialist, for help accessing Follett through Bismarck Public Schools and OverDrive through the Bismarck Public Library.
