Ebooks - Digital Reading
eBooks are available in our schools. Enjoy 24-7 access 365 days a year!
eBooks open up new possibilities for learning. They can turn a laptop into a library, an interactive whiteboard into an instrument for deeper understanding and a single book into a shared learning experience. eBooks provide a novel, powerful approach to reach your child. They help you engage students in reading and comprehension exercises, boost their interest in new topics, and provide real-life examples of lessons, both in the library and the classroom.
What is an eBook?
eBooks can be used in two ways: You and your child can access them online from anywhere and make use of the built-in dictionary and integrated search tools. Or, you can download and view eBooks offline, which reserves the eBook for a set circulation period, and allows the use of the search, highlighting, note-taking and copy/paste/print features as permitted by the publisher.
How to view eBooks?
Under the Explore link, you will see a blue link to access the book. These may require a username and password that you can get from your school librarian.
You may see an icon on the left of the page that says: Read online – just click that link. This is a Follet eBook. Follett also has an App that you can download called Follett Shelf.
