Image of Boy Reading iPadeBooks 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.
