Digital Library

OVERDRIVE

 

 

Overdrive gives us access to both eBooks and audio books.  Most of our eBook and audio book resources are chapter books for our older students.  Although our students can see all content, as elementary students they will only be allowed to check out elementary level media.  (High school, middle school, and elementary school students all have access to Overdrive.)

Overdrive ebooks and audio books can be downloaded to most ereaders.  Just click on this overdrive page to video how to videos and get instructions on how to download media to your devices, and to find support in troubleshooting any problems you have.
