Supporting learning & fostering a lifelong love of reading

The Queensland State Schools eBooks Digital Library is a shared collection of eBooks, audiobooks and read-along eBooks hand selected for the students and educators of the department. 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.

Whether you’re already a member or are considering joining, this site provides resources to help your school support learning and foster a lifelong love of reading with the eBooks Digital Library.
