We use Sora for many of our eBooks. You will need to:

  1. go to
  2. Select St. Andrews (make sure you select the right St. Andrews!)
  3. log in with your username and password (ask Dr. Waugh!)

Check Montgomery County Library! In addition to print books, there are many e-books. You can place holds and even request books via Interlibrary Loan (ILL) if MCPL doesn't have what you need. If you are placing a hold expect it to take a few days for something that is in, but located at another branch. For ILL it may take a week or more to come in. 

DCPL has a really strong collection and will deliver a book you need to your local branch when you place a hold. DCPL does participate in Interlibrary Loan (ILL) but there may be a fee associated with it, so it is best to check with the library before placing a request. 

Your DC Public Library card grants you reciprocal privileges at the following neighboring public library systems:
  • Alexandria
  • Arlington
  • Fairfax County
  • Falls Church  
  • Loudoun County
