• High School Online Resources

    The North Allegheny Library Department is committed to providing our students with 24-hour access to library materials for research, leisure, and information-seeking purposes.  As such, the high school libraries have a variety of databases and eBooks that can be accessed from school and home.  These resources offer beneficial features including text to speech, language options, enlargement capabilities, online dictionaries as well as save and send options.  All students can access these through their laptops without the need for usernames and passwords.  If students need remote access, please access the information available in Blackboard under their Library community group.
