Why is this so great?

 

• students, parents and staff can sign out ebooks (electronic/digital versions of books) and read them on their electronic devices (tablets, phones and computers).

 

• ebooks in the TLDSB Digital Library are generally organized by division.  Students in the Primary division (e.g., grade 1) would be unable to sign out a book meant for the Secondary division (e.g., grade 10).

 

• a “reserve” can be placed on an ebook in the digital library.  When the book becomes available, you will be informed, can login and then sign out the book.

 

• the TLDSB is using OverDrive as the app to access our digital library.  Overdrive is a proven app that is easy to install and use.

 

• both the TLDSB and OverDrive have lots of support documentation available to help guide new and experienced users.
