OverDrive provides eBooks and Audiobooks through a subscription paid for by libraries.
You can use OverDrive on many devices, including BWRSD Chromebooks, home laptops, tablets, iPads, and your phone.
To access OverDrive you need a Rhode Island public library card. Public library cards are free and can be applied for online. The middle school age range overlaps both Kids and Teens.
Because both websites have a lot of images, it may take 10 to 25 seconds for each website to fully display the book covers.
Many thanks to Rogers Free Library Outreach Librarian Nancy Kellner for providing this information and to the additional staff members who provide these services.
250+ ebooks for a variety of age levels.
