Free Audio Books:
Schools and libraries are navigating unchartered territory right now, and we want to help our customers any way we can.
One thing we can do is make sure that no child will be without access to books while schools and libraries are closed to the public. We are giving FREE access to all of our eBooks and databases through June, 2020.
We want to make sure every student gets free and unrestricted access to thousands of eBooks from their homes.
I have included the links below to access the free library books. Please share these links with students, teachers, administrators, and parents and include them in your distance learning plans.
Elementary Digital Bookshelf Prek-8
Secondary Digital Bookshelf 5-12
