Middle 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, middle school libraries have a variety of databases and eBooks that can be accessed at home. Each offers beneficial features including text to speech, language options, enlargement capabilities, online dictionaries, as well as save and send options. For remote access, please refer to the information available in their Blackboard Library community groups.
