Thanks to INFOhio, BookFlix is free for Ohio students!


One of the best things about BookFlix is our students (and their younger siblings) can easily access it from home.

Remote access means every family in your community will have a home library of nearly 300 books and access to rich educational content.

Hello Smith community!

I’m Elaine Fultz your new librarian. I’ve been reading children’s and teen books nonstop since I was a kid because I studied literature and K-12 education at Wright State University and then received my Master of Library Science from The University of Pittsburgh where I concentrated in youth services. Reading, reading, reading all the time.

I don’t believe in shushing, and I do believe in promoting students’ ownership of their libraries, including Smith’s and the super conveniently located Wright Memorial Public Library.
