E-Books Available to Students



Need books to read?  There are ways to get your eBook read on.  Just because we can't check-out books in the library doesn't mean you can't keep reading.  Below are four easy options that every Lakeside Mariner has at their fingertips to check-out eBooks.


IUSD Overdrive  

Overdrive is a platform for eBooks in IUSD.  It contains mostly high-interest fiction K-12 with some non-fiction sprinkled in for good measure.

IUSD and Orange County Public Library (OCPL)

Some exciting news! IUSD and OCPL have teamed up to give our students easy access to the Overdrive collection through OCPL.  This will give our students a way to add the public library for eBooks and audiobooks even if they do not have an OCPL card. Licenses in Overdrive are single user licenses except for the Project Gutenberg titles.
