Hello Springside Parents!

I want to make you aware of some changes to how your students will be able to check out books from the library this year.  Students in 3rd - 6th grade will have access to reading materials in the following ways:


  1.  Request Books from the Springside Library

  • Students will log into our online “Researcher” at springside.goalexandria.com

  • Follow the directions on the document “How to Put a Book on Hold”   https://bit.ly/3kSjcyx

  • Mrs. Miller will deliver the book to your classroom within a couple of days.

  1.  Choose a book from the “New & Notable” book cart.

  • During regular library times (weekly or bi-monthly) students will have an opportunity to browse and check out books from the grade level book carts brought to their classroom.  Special requests can be made at that time.  

  1.  Don’t forget SORA!  Alpine School District and Springside Elementary have developed a great online library for our students here at Springside.  We currently have a good selection of books, read-along books,  and audio books and we are continually adding to it!  

  • SORA is a free app for your iPad, smartphones or Kindle. 

  1.  Student login:  student username  = student ID # (skyward #, lunch # etc.)

      Password = last name (lowercase)

*This is the login for both the Springside Researcher and SORA app.  

We are excited to be back - and excited to GET READING!
