Nook e-readers are available for loan through the Mid-Hudson Teacher Center to educators in our member districts. These e-readers make it easy for students to highlight, take notes, and look up unfamiliar words. They can also be very helpful in addressing the skills of using text-based answers and writing from sources. Attached is a list of available books. More are being added. Any questions please call the office at 845-257-2885.
