E-books and Online Magazines

E-book Collections

WMS library offers access to two e-book collections. E-books and e-audiobooks can be accessed from the online library catalog or through either the MackinVIA app or the Destiny Discover app (shown below). The apps are available in iTunes and GooglePlay. Instructions for using the apps are below.

***Special note: The location of any teachers or students transferring to other APS schools will be changed to their new school sometime mid-July in the catalog system. If anyone has trouble accessing the WMS e-collections by mid-July, log out completely, and then log in again choosing your new school location.***

Online Magazines

WMS students have access to an online magazine service called Flipster. Students can download the Flipster app from the app store. Please email the library staff if you need the username and password.
