The County Library will be issuing each IHS student a library card that will allow students to access any library in Somerset County. The advantages of being a library member are endless. The students will be able to access endless resources including books, eBooks, magazines, games and utilize the numerous educational databases at any time either online or at the library facility.

Below is a list of some of the many library databases that are frequently used.

  • Gale Virtual Reference Library (eBook)
  • Facts on File
