Overdrive- Digital Library! (By Sarah Wilkie)

Happy New Year!  Are you still keeping up with your New Year’s resolutions?  If one of your resolutions was to read more in 2018, then check out Overdrive!   You should all have your Overdrive login information, which will allow you to sign out audiobooks and ebooks.

Have you seen the collection of read-alongs offered by Overdrive?  These are picture ebooks that are professionally narrated for our younger students!  As the audio is playing, each word is highlighted to make it easier for students to follow.  Included are popular books, like Scaredy Squirrel, Splat the Cat, Curious George, and several Dr. Seuss books.  

There are some lesser known read-alongs, like Suki’s Kimono by Chieri Uegaki, which tells of diversity and acceptance through the story of a little girl who loves to wear her kimono.

To find the read-alongs, sign in to Overdrive, click the “Collections” tab at the top of the screen, then click “Read Alongs”.

P.S. For our older students, there are collections for you too:  Middle School Must Reads, Welcome to Hogwarts, Thrillers and Chillers, and more!!
