McKinney ISD has prepared a Coronavirus (COVID-19) information page with links to important resources relating to the district's response to the pandemic. This page will be updated as new information is made available. Visit http://www.mckinneyisd.net/covid/ to learn more.

eBooks

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 the “Help” link on the overdrive page to get instructions on how to download media to your devices, and to find support in troubleshooting any problems you have. Or you can watche videos for help – Overdrive Help Videos.

This is how our students will log in:

  • Library Card Number:  s(student ID number) – Example: s123456
  • PIN:  Eight digit birthdate – Example:  04091999

Another option we have for eBooks is through the Follett Digital Reader App.    You can download the app from the iTunes app store.  Most of the content  available from this source is for our younger students in picture book format.  Instructions for downloading and using the app are here: Follett Digital Reader App

Once you have downloaded the Follett Digital Reader App on your device, open it.  In the http:// window, enter the following code: wbb01905

Next, the student should enter “s” and their student number for the Username window and then use their birthdate for the Password window.
