Content is available to all participating schools, and the collection grows as more join, providing access to a much larger collection than any single school could afford on its own.

How your peers make the most of their ebook service

Stretton State College uses the eBooks Digital Library to get students reading, while saving parents money.

"… All of the students in Years 3-6 bring their own iPad to school. During presentations with parents, I have always used the ebook library as a selling point for the program. It saves A LOT of money if the kids can read what they want for free on the iPad. I have also encouraged the use of the iPad’s guided access feature and now Screen Time, which enables a parent to allow a student to read unsupervised without fear of them having access to other apps, internet, etc. "
