Slade’s eBook collection on activity pages:

MackinVia   username: slade    password: 3@gl3S

Get epic!    choose “Student or Educator” then enter class code: gsy5273. Search for your name. Remember we have some students with the same first name, so look for the right account! Students can access Epic! for up to 2 hours outside of “school hours” of 7:30-4:00 on weekdays.

BookFlix    BookFlix is one of the resources provided to all citizens of Wyoming by the Wyoming State Library via GoWyld.net!

At the end of the BookFlix description, there is an option to use “this link” if you’re not at a school or library. When you click the link you will be asked to authenticate your account. If you do NOT have an active library card within the state you can still use BookFlix, use the info below. If you have a county library card you’ll be able to access books from OverDrive and iCloud, as well as many of the subscription databases paid for by the State Library. Before the end of the year students in ACSD1 should be able to access OverDrive through their school account. We’re working on activating an app called SORA.

If you don’t have a card use this information for access to a limited number of databases, including BookFlix:

library card number: wyoschool       PIN: wyld

GoWyld.net has lots of great resources you can use with your public library card. If you don’t have a library card, you can use the password set up for schools. See how to use it where it says “PASSWORD!“, down below.

Here’s the link for the best resources for Kids K-8. This includes links to Britannica Online and BookFlix, among others!

PASSWORD! When you click the link you want, you might get this page where you need to enter the secret information. 

“Enter library card number” type in WYOSCHOOL

“PIN” type in WYLD



The public library currently offers limited walk-in services, and they have people available by phone or email to help!

You can even get a library card over the phone! Contact them!
