Library resources to help you through the school year:

  • Library Card
    • A ZB Library card is must for all students! It’s needed to access all of our resources from home or school. When visiting the library, students will need to present a library card to access our computers or check any material out. 
    • Learn more about the benefits of having a library card and apply for one today: https://zblibrary.info/get-a-library-card/ 
  • HelpNow:
    • (Powered by Brainfuse) Students may submit a question in the online classroom and receive live, one-on-one assistance from a Brainfuse tutor, or use the skills building service to master a concept or skill through state-aligned online lessons. Upload your paper to the 24-Hour Writing Lab and Brainfuse experts will provide constructive feedback and other assistance. *Note: Some functions will require the library card holder to create an account in order to use them.*
  • Mango Languages: 
    • Mango offers a fast and convenient solution for our community’s increasing language-learning needs.  There are more than 40 foreign language courses available and 16 English as a Second Language (ESL) courses.  Learn Spanish, French, Japanese and even Pirate!  Mango is an excellent resource for students to get ahead in their foreign-language courses.  You will need to create a profile.  *App available

Many more resources for students (of all ages) and parents are available on our eResources by Name page.

eContent Update

Our Consortium is working very hard on integrating our digital collections into the catalog. This process will take some time to complete.
What this means is that records from our digital collections are being added daily. If you are searching for downloadable content (eBooks, eAudiobooks, or eMagazines), you will not see all of our holdings in the search until the project is complete.
What we recommend is that you visit each one of our digital collections directly to  browse, checkout, and download the desired content at this time.
