How to Access e-books/audio- books through your school library

1. Go to the Peace Dale Elementary School Library Catalog 

2. Make sure you login.

3. Look for the "e-books" ribbon

4. Click on the title that you would like to read or click on "See All" for more titles

Please note: 

  • an eBook may be opened and read without checking it out.
  • But if you close the eBook someone else can check it out.
  • You would no longer have access to it if it is a "single-use" title. 
  • So, best practice is to check the book out if you want to be absolutely sure it will be there when you need/want it.
