Parent Lending Library

EBooks

More than just pages on a screen – eBooks are a great way to read on the go! Ebooks can be used in two ways: You can access them online from anywhere. You can also download and view eBooks offline, which reserves the eBook for a set circulation period, allowing use of the search, highlighting, note taking and copy/paste/print features as permitted by the publisher.

We now have a growing collection of eBooks on a wide variety of topics that parents can access. They are separate from the school library collection.
