Dakota County Library cards - District 196 has begun a new collaboration with the Dakota County Library system that will provide our students with fine-free library cards, giving them instant access to the vast resources available through the public library system.  The process to activate these Student Access cards has begun with current EVHS 9th graders.  We will continue with sophomores and juniors into 4th quarter through their English classes.  A letter was sent home in March with additional details regarding the program. 


Students may check out print books from any of the Dakota County Libraries with their new digital library card (196+student ID and a self-selected password).  In addition, students have access to a homework helpline, digital eBooks and audiobooks and many research databases.  A general overview of the program can be found here:


Students needing assistance with setup or apps should come to the Learning Commons.  


The Zapp Lab Makerspace is located in the Learning Commons.  It includes 3D printers, Spheros, Axidraw, circuit boards and much more. Students are welcome to come and work in the lab before/after school or during study halls with a pass.  Please stop down and check us out!



In the Zapp Lab, we use, reuse and recycle all kinds of things!  Many of our tools and supplies are donated by families that have items they no longer need.  Here is a wish list of items we could most use.  Donations can be dropped off in the Learning Commons.



All students are invited to learn how to use our 3D printers.  Training is currently held every Tuesday at 2:30pm in the Learning Commons.  After completing the 30 minute training session, each student receives 2 free prints (up to 10 hours).  Students can explore a wealth of pre-designed projects at or they can begin designing their own projects.  Open to all students!
