SDMS Rate and Review Book Contest


Attention SDMS Students!

Participate in Our 1st EVER

Library Book Rating & Comment Contest

How it works:

Read, Rate, and Comment on at least 5 library books you check out between now and our December Book Fair. Once you have rated 5 books you will be entered into our drawing for 1 of 10 $5.00 Scholastic Gift Certificates redeemable at our December Book Fair.

The Fine Print:

All comments are moderated – so your comments must be accepted to qualify for the drawing. Students must enter complete information on the comment form so we know who to enter into the drawing. Comments must be well written and must be more than a single sentence. Comments that do not meet our quality guidelines will not be accepted.

Searsport Middle/High School Library Adopts OPALS as the New Catalog


This summer the library moved our collection to a new online catalog, OPALS. Our new catalog adds many new features for both students and staff to use. Take a look at the new site by visiting: http://sdmh.mimas.scoolaid.net.

Some of the New Features:

  • 100% web-based – access the catalog from school or home.
  • Online patron accounts with patron initiated reserves, and email notices.
    • Use your student ID# or Library ID# to register your account.
  • User generated ratings and reviews.
  • Online Google book previews for many of our titles.
  • Online pathfinders (resource topic guides) for students and staff.

We hope you will give the new catalog a try, and send us your feedback and questions.
