Getting the most out of your elibrary

Student choice is key to ensuring titles are actually read. Why not ask your students to help top-up your new elibrary? Students can combine search and filter categories to find age-appropriate, interesting and engaging books they'd like to read, then submit Book Requests.

Add a core set of engaging books to your elibrary using our time-saving Book Packs.

You can check how much your students are reading using our Reports function.
